At first, I was excited to learn there was a Hindu god who was half lion, half man -- with six limbs! But as it turns out, all the limbs are human, and the head is leonine. Kind of an anti-wemic, actually. This is Lord Narasimha, an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu, having a human-like torso and lower body, with a lion-like face and claws. He is known primarily as the 'Great Protector' who specifically defends and protects his devotees in times of need, per Wikipedia.
