This page comes from an 18th-century folding cloth book of religious and mythological oil-colour paintings, copied from originals in the Brahmanical Pagoda of Chokalingam at Madhura in Karnataka. It was commissioned by a British surgeon named David Simpson and the paintings were made by a local artist.
Here we see a depiction of Sri Narasimha, the half-human half-lion incarnation of Vishnu.
