An eight-legged creature of mythical repute, Sharabha is known to have cleared great valleys in a single jump. Stronger than an elephant and more powerful than a lion, He is an avatar (earthly incarnation of the divine) of the great Lord Veerabhadra. His form is a composite of man and beast and bird, as could be seen in this one-of-a-kind Bronze Statue made in South India. Lord Shrabha Bronze Statue has a fierce, lion-like countenance. He has the torso of the human male flanked by two arms on each side, which makes Him a chaturbhujadhari (the one possessed of four arms). From His back sprouts a pair of powerful wings that bear Him across the three realms of existence (lokas).
