Vishnu, Shiva, and Brahma
The image shows a section of the murals painted more than 500-years ago on the ceiling of the Ranga Mantapa, a covered hall in front of the garbhagriha (inner sanctum) of the Virupaksha Temple, located in Hampi, Karnataka, India. As you can see, the panel has three principal frames, each depicting a god from the Hindu Trinity.
Check the Hampi Virupaksha Temple Murals page for a detailed explanation of the paintings.
