The way Katara holds Aang after he is struck down by Azula’s lightning greatly resembles La Pieta, a famous sculpture of the Virgin Mary holding Jesus after he is brought down from the crucifix. The best known version is by Michelangelo. This also emphasizes how Aang’s near-fatal injury by Azula and subsequent revival by Katara parallels the Christian story of the world’s savior dying and being resurrected.
