Vishnu is a major god in Hinduism. He is the "Preserver of the Universe", one who upholds the universal laws. He oversees the whole cosmos, participates in creation, & ensures that all is well.

He is depicted with a glowing blue body, symbolizing the infinite. The crown on his head a symbol of his Divine Power & Supreme Authority, the garland around his neck a symbol of the worship he receives as god. Dressed in yellow, he symbolizes the destruction of evil & his fight for justice. His gold earrings stand for the duality of creation (creation & destruction), and he usually has four arms.

Lord Vishnu's four arms are often depicted holding a shell, a lotus, a scepter & a disc.
