This is the most important statue in Hampi. Narasimha is sitting at the coil of a giant seven-headed snake called Sesha. The heads of the snake acts as the hood above his head. The god sits in a go-legged Yoga function with a belt supporting the knees. Sometimes this is referred as Ugra Narasimha. The sticking out eyes and the facial expression are the idea for this call. Narasimha is on of the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu. The original statue contained the picture of goddess Lakshmi, consort of the god, sitting on his lap. But this statue has been broken seriously in the course of the raid leading to the fall of Vijayanagara.
Even the damaged part of the sort of large statue of Lakshmi carved on his lap is lacking. Probably it could be laying around in tiny pieces. But the goddess’s hand is visible resting on his lower back in embracing posture. If you get a hazard to go internal this enclosure, it's far viable to peer the hand of the goddess. Even the nails & the rings on her arms are so flawlessly done. Lion face of Lakshmi Narasimha also every so often referred to as as Unganarasimha. Somehow this single statue on my own can display at the same time how innovative and destructive the human thoughts can be.
