Like superheroes in need of a new power suit, Hindu gods reincarnate themselves in new forms, usually to complete a quest or task. Vishnu arrived on earth as Narasimha, his man-lion incarnation, to defeat the evil king Hiranyakashipu who had become overly powerful after Brahma gave him one too many blessings. There are a lot of Narasimha icons carved into the rock around Hampi.
