The colorful deities and demons of India...

KURMA

Hindu Supreme God

A Cosmic Tortoise

Of course! It’s another incarnation of Vishnu. That’s cosmic and not comic.

It’s the Cosmic Egg again. And a Vedic tortoise popped out — only he may have been a turtle because he does a lot of swimming around.

Kurma helped out when the Gods were making Ambrosia from the Primordial Sea of Milk. Well, it’s very good for the skin.
