Narasimha (the man-lion incarnation of Vishnu)

Before the entrance of a palace sits Vishnu in his incarnation (avatara) as a man-lion with a man over his lap whose entrails he has opened; before him a reverent man (the Prince Prahlada) with folded hands. Around the scene a narrow orange and a narrow gold border.
