For the welfare of the worlds, the imperishable Vishnu took the form of a man lion. The cult of the man-lion is an ancient one. In the Narasimha, valiance is worshipped as an aspect of divinity.

In this painting we see the fierce form of Narasimha, emerging after tearing the pillar into two. He puts Hiranyakasipu on his lap and kills him by his bare claws. As the story goes, Prahlad, son of an evil and powerful king, is a pious boy devoted to Vishnu. His father tried to discourage his pious inclination and inflicted on his cruel punishments. Finally, he decided to kill him. Hiranyakasipu himself was invincible, having received a boon that he could not be killed by day or night, by man or beast, inside nor outside, or by any weapon. Hence Vishnu as Narasimha, appear as neither man nor beast, kills him with his claws at the hour of twilight, within a pillar. Not flaying any of the conditions of the boon Vishnu kills him and saves Prahlad, his devotee.

The artist has used white, the sattva colour, to represent Vishnu; colour purple for the evil king and pale yellow for the human Prahlad, thus colour scheme being based on gunas. There is intense movement in the pictorial narration highlighted by colour.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
