The god Hanuman

It is the monkey-headed god. Out of the ordinary force, he helped Rama to fight Ravana and rescue Sita, the wife of Rama. His weapon is a golden club (gadha) which he alone can lift. He can grow at will to become a giant.

He is often depicted with his chest open, thus showing those who doubt him that he carries Rama and Sita in his heart.
