What is the practice in the Catholic church for having religious pictures hanging from the front of the ambo?

Those are usually symbols for the four Evangelists: Saints Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.Source(s): www.askmeaboutgod.org

Catholics are confused. They will typically reply, like Paul, to say the pictures (paintings) are just memory aids like photos friends but then they often bow, nod or do their crossy thing in front as a sign of veneration. They never do this to photos of friends though.
Irrespective the thing they call veneration is either playing with fire or stepping over the line. Either way Catholics have no clue how God views their veneration... and could see it, like I do, as an act of worship!

The only "ambo" I ever heard of is a member of an ambulance crew. If you are asking why God's Church uses pictures, why does anyone use them? To call to mind those persons who have played major roles in the history of our Church, and therefore the history of Christianity.
