Matsya is the avatar (incarnation) of the Hindu god Vishnu in the form of a fish. Often listed as the first avatar in the lists of the ten primary avatars of Vishnu, Matsya is described to have rescued the first man, Manu, from a great deluge. Matsya may be depicted as a giant fish, or anthropomorphically with a human torso connected to the rear half of a fish. Matsya is generally represented with four hands—one holding the conch shell, one holding the discus (chakra), one holding a lotus flower, and one holding a gada (mace). In this art he is shown holding four holy texts.
