Presenting a beautiful and rare painting of the Varaha Avatar of Vishnu who is depicted in an anthropomorphic form, with a boar's head and human body.
Varahavatar is Lord Narayana‘s third incarnation. This story also takes place during the time of the great deluge. There arose a mighty asura named Hiranyaksha who oppressed the three worlds. He had gained his strength through extreme tapas (austerities), which earned him a boon from Lord Brahma. He kidnapped the earth and hide her at the depths of the great ocean. This denied the devas their sacrifices and so they began to weaken. Upon learning that he was not the mightiest in the universe, he searched for Narayana to satisfy his pride.
Vishnu appeared in the form of a great boar and dove into waters in search of Bhudevi (Mother Earth). Hiranyaksha got his wish and challenged Varahavatar at the bottom of the ocean. After a thousand years of battle, the great boar was victorious over the mighty demon. After placing it between his great tusks, he returned the earth to its rightful place; Bhudevi and Vaharavatar were then married.
