Parashurama, the sixth incarnation or Avatar of Vishnu belongs to the Treta yuga. Parashu means axe, hence his name literally means Rama-with-the-axe.

The story behind the name and appearance of this Avatar concern's a sage's son, Rama, who became a brilliant archer. In gratitude for having this skill conferred on him he went to the Himalayas and did penance to Shiva for many years. Shiva was pleased with this devotion and, when fighting broke out between the gods and demons, ordered Rama to go and defeat the demons. Rama successfully did so. As a reward, Shiva gave Rama many gifts and weapons; one of these was a magnificent axe (parashu) after which Rama was known as Parashuram. It is this weapon he is shown carrying in his traditional iconography, as shown in the present artwork.

According to another story the incarnation of Parashurama was undertaken by Vishnu for the purpose of exterminating the Kshatriya, or warrior caste, which had tried to assert its authority over the Brahmanical. Twenty-one times Rama is said to have cleared the earth of Kshatriyas, but by various means some few were preserved alive who were able to perpetuate the race. The origin of this feud lay in the episode when a king stole the wish-fulfilling cow of Parashuram's father. Parashurama, who had once demonstrated his filial piety by beheading his own mother at his father's request and then having her brought to life again, took his revenge for the theft by killing the king. In return the king's son killed Parashurama's father. Thus Parashurama swore revenge by vowing to exterminate all of the ruling class, namely the Kshatriyas, from the face of the earth.

Here Parashurama is shown in a vigorous posture brandishing his axe. The blood spattered background and the dynamism of the sky, all indicate the extreme nature of his task.
