So I was using StumbleUpon earlier this evening. And I ran across this page

According to Wikipedia:
A mudrā (Sanskrit, मुद्रा, literally “seal”) is a symbolic gesture, used in the iconography of Hindu and Buddhist art of the Indian subcontinent. They are usually made with the hand or fingers. Along with āsanas (seated postures), they are employed in the yoga meditation practice of Hinduism. Each mudrā has a specific quality that is said to be imparted to the practitioner. Common hand gestures are to be seen in both Hindu and Buddhist iconography. Other regions, for example Thailand and Laos use different but related iconographic conventions.

The Mudra above is called: Prithvi Mudra [Earth Mudra]
