A hand gesture, originating from American Sign Language, which translates into "I love you". In this gesture, the index and little fingers point upwards, the thumb points to the side, and the palm faces outwards. Often used by performing artists on stage.

Its etymology is a combination of the hand shapes for I, L, and Y from the American one-handed sign alphabet, which is almost, but not quite, the same as the International sign alphabet.
