According to the Shilpa Shastra (an ancient text on Indian iconography), the image of Vishnu is of three types:

3). Sayana the reclining pose.

Here he is obviously represented in the first form, which symbolizes that Vishnu is the cosmic axis or tree of life, standing straight as a post, connecting the earth to the heavens above.
