Could you pls advise what image is below? That was taken in Jaisalmer.

Is it Varaha, an avatar of Vishnu? @Indx TechStyle @Akshay_Fenix et al.


but it doesn't have four hands, as in below images I searched online --





Thanks for clarification!

I invite all of u incl @ajaatshatru to clarify for me.

I read that Varaha (Vishnu's avatar) has four hands. But I see only two arms in the Jaisalmer one??!! Its snout(?) looks like a boar (?) but the long tail??

Is it Varaha or Hanuman? Thanks

Well, how correct I am I don't no. But I can tell you how I came to the conclusion. 1) picture you posted has a long tail..hanumanji has a one...varaha avatar never drawn with a tail. 2) in picture character is carrying a mountain on his hand..which a trademark of hanuman ji's pictures, whereas varah Ji always shown carrying earth on his big tusk like teeth. 3) on another hand, carrying another trademark of hanumanji I.e. gada.. 4) I am from Rajasthan.
PS: sorry for spelling mistakes.
