This is Keshava Vishnu.

Keshava means His hair is curly and black.

I have heard many times that Krishna (or Vishnu) is very merciful, however, as He holds different objects on His hands - Mace, Discus, lotus flower and Conch-shell, so His mercy can be given in different ways.

Generally the lotus flower and the conshell are for devotees, so to say - an example of lines I have heard.

the question is:

where in the scriptures is this described?

in anyways, Keshava Vishnu, (or Krishna) is always beyond the reach of our material senses, and we can never understand the full picture.

    @marcellomiorelli Thanks but that is on Shaligrama stones but I don't know scriptures that describe real Lord Vishnu in Keshava form.
