Anjali(-mudra)—The hands are loosely held together with the palms together and the fingers stretched up. If they are held in this position in front of the chest, this denotes worship. If they are held in front of the forehead, the gesture can also be a greeting (Namaskara).
Shilpashastra (शिल्पशास्त्र, śilpaśāstra) represents the ancient Indian science (shastra) of creative arts (shilpa) such as sculpture, iconography and painting. Closely related to Vastushastra (architecture), they often share the same literature.
