Narsimha- the half-man half-lion form and fourth incarnation of Vishnu.
Narasimha is the half-man, half-lion, and fourth incarnation of Hindu God Vishnu – the preserver. He was incarnated to slay the demon, Hiranykashipu, the father of an ardent devotee of Vishnu, Prahalad. Hiranyakashipu hated Vishnu for killing his brother Hiranyaksha. Hiranyakashipu gains blessing by which he could not be killed during the day or night, inside or outside, by god, demon, man or animal. To slay the demon, Vishnu incarnates as a mix of man and animal and kills the Hiranyakashipu at the junction of day and night, inside and outside. He is depicted as four-armed, holding conch, lotus, mace, and chakra (disk-like weapon), standing at the threshold of the house.
