In the New Guinea highlands each number is associated with a body part, so that the word for "three" might be the same word used to denote the middle finger.

A c.1996 short film by Tao Ruspoli was a synchronous experience for me but the link has since moved. While the short was loading you could read some interesting facts about pi, but you can find more pi facts at the Joy of Pi website.

Tao Ruspoli's short 'moving pictures' is just like a dream I had circa 1996 and he ties it all in with π and the middle finger! Can't find the link (once at http://www.ruspoli.com/movingpictures) but see his photography at http://www.taoruspoli.com/gallery/8044271_uedHy#523820707_ddtL2
