You can refer to the works of Om Swami to know more about different mudras.
Let's go beyond this illusion, shall we?

It is interesting to try out different mudras and see what effect they have on your meditation. The one you show usually involves touching the thumb and index finger too. The main point is that open hands like this show openness to change. Some would say that it is openness to energy too. Either way the best thing is to try the hands like that, then try with palms down, to see if there is any difference for you. If there is then it may be worth exploring more mudras.
“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.” Franz Kafka

Well thank you, you have kind of proved what I have thought of myself. In this picture sadly it doesnt show, but it's just open hands (thumb and point finger not touching). I was also thinking it had something to do with recieving energy opening up to more.  :)
 Peace . And yeah, explore people :)
