Śrīmad Bhāgavatam
Canto 4 Chapter 8 Text 47


śrīvatsāṅkaṁ ghana-śyāmaṁ
puruṣaṁ vana-mālinam

The Lord is further described as having the mark of Śrīvatsa, or the sitting place of the goddess of fortune, and His bodily hue is deep bluish. The Lord is a person, He wears a garland of flowers, and He is eternally manifest with four hands, which hold [beginning from the lower left hand] a conchshell, wheel, club and lotus flower.
