beautiful depiction of pooja to hanuman with betel leaves..

I think the image is flipped or the author has misrepresented the illustration. The dude is wearing his sacred thread in pracheenavidham which is only for ancestor worship.

Hanuman with hands like Durga? Interesting..

Vijay...sir...yes it seems it is misrepresentation ...he is using his right hand and yegyopaveth is in the wrong right shoulder...

Agree with Vijayaraghavan... Apasavya (Yegyopaveth on right shoulder) is done only while doing ShraddhKarma
