In one hand that is a what? and the other is forming a mudra. A phallic shirt (anteater-precircumcision), phallic topper(postcircumcision) - don't usually see girls with space helmets in the fifties as I recall. I had a bell and howell projector to watch flash gordon reels (no sound) - used to look at the individual images on the celluloid)
