For non-Simpsons imagery see the article in the ‘Human Mind and Body’ section in the ‘Symbolism’ section.

A common image I have seen is someone lying on the ground with the hands up/down pose.

The statue of Springfield hero, JEBEDIAH SPRINGFIELD, depicts him with the hands up/down pose.

This is an ongoing article.
