world pictures Peninsular India: Chalukya 1: Badami

Trivikrama, an avatar of Vishnu. The story is that Vishnu appeared as a Brahmin before a demon named Bali and asked for the land he could embrace in three steps. The wish was granted. Bali's wife washed Vishnu's feet with water from the Ganga. (She is shown with her waterpot at the lower right here). Vishnu then rose to colossal size, one foot covering the earth while the other reached the sky. One of Bali's soldiers tries to push him down; others attack from above. Not a chance.
