3 Enakshi Ganguly = ""A Tibetan depiction of Rahu (Rāhula) with 9 heads and a face in his belly, the mouth of which swallows up the moon or sun during eclipses. He is usually shown with a thousand eyes all over his dark-colored body. In his four arms he holds a bow and arrow, and often a lasso and victory banner. He is wrathful in appearance, ablaze with fire, and his lower body has the form of a snake."Source: http://eyeburfi.tumblr.com/post/1115017486/a-tibetan-depiction-of-rahu-r%C4%81hula-with-9-heads"
