Aren't those Buddhist Mudras?

I would say it's a symbol of Christ acts done by His hands.



Concerning Namaskara Mudra:  "Buddhas no longer make this gesture because they do not have to show devotion to anything". Why is that? Sounds like the very opposite spiritual state of orthodox saints.

How is it schlock compared to what you posted?

 Jesus Christ is riding a reindeer doubt there were any reindeer in Judea!

You post cartoons.
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

thank you so much Mor ephrem you are a hero!
