Pralambāsura (प्रलम्बासुर) is depicted as a sculpture on the second pillar of the southern half of the maṇḍapa of the temple of Lokeśvara.—At the extreme right is a demon named Pralamba, an emissary of Kaṃsa, who, disguising himself in the garb of a cowherd, entered in play with Balarāma and Kṛṣṇa. He took Balarāma on his shoulders and jumped to the sky. Balarāma, on realizing with whom he had to do, gave such mortal blows on the head that it split into pieces and the demon fell lifeless on the ground pushing bhairavaṃ svanam, loud cries.(Source): Archaeological Survey of India: Śaiva monuments at Paṭṭadakal (śilpa)
