That's a propaganda poster for the 1st Balkan War.
And then the three Christian nations + Ottomans turned against Bulgaria (2nd Balkan War).

That's an adaption of the story for people from another culture. So, e.g in Ethiopian icons Christ and saints are quite Black.

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.
