Vishnu in Apocalyptic Horseman form

Horse God, or at least a part of Vishnu horsing about.

Sometimes he is a horse with four arms, sometimes he rides a white horse when we presume he is in a more human mode, but possibly with addition of hocks and hooves.

Anyway, when the human race reverts to total bestiality, his job will be to gallop through the world with a sword, purging and purifying us so we can start anew.
