Narashima | Bronze Indian Statue
A striking Indian bronze statue of the half-man half-lion god Narashima, an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu.
Narashima has four arms; in one hand he holds a conch, in another a mace. He has the body of a man but the face and claws of a lion. His back is protected by seven cobras whose hooded heads cover Narashima's own head. Being half man half lion he cannot be destroyed by the conventional ills that may befall a pure figure. He arrives when the world needs to be saved from a demon.
