Odd Imagery

Narasimha (1875)

“Vishnu in the guise of the man-lion (Narasimha) emerges from a pillar of the palace to defeat the demon Hiranyakashipu. To his right is a young man, the Prince Prahlada.” – Image Description.

The description says ‘lion’, but it looks more like a rabbit. Either way, cool imagery!
