Jagannath

Hindu - An incarnation of Vishnu as a relentless god. Brother of Balabhadra and Subhadra. He is depicted with no legs and only stumps in place of arms. One version accounts for this by saying that Vishnu was accidentally killed by a hunter and Vishvakarma undertook to revivify him by forming new flesh on the original bones. Krishna broke the undertaking that nobody should look until the job was finished with the result that it never was completed. In some accounts, Jagannath is an incarnation of Krishna.
