Chaturmurti is often used for the name of Lord Brahma and is supposed to have four heads. However most of the time he is referred to a particular form of Lord Vishnu. This aspect of Vishnu has four faces with a body of human being and heads of a man, a lion, a boar and a demon. This form of Vishnu signifies four manifestations in the forms of Vasudeva, Pradyumna, Sankarshana (Balarama) and Aniruddha. The human face Vasudeva is at the centre, flanked on right and left respectively by a lion and a boar (Aniruddha and Sankarshana), while on the back the face is of a griming Rakshasa (Pradyumna). Chaturmurti is often depicted with four arms also.
