Uchaishravas

In Hindu mythology, Uchaishravas ("sharp-ears") is a seven-headed flying horse, that was obtained during the churning of the milk ocean. Bali, leader of the Asuras, took possession of this horse, but it eventually became the vehicle of Indra, king of the gods. George Harrison's Dark Horse Records music label uses a logo inspired by Uchaishravas. Uchaishravas is said to be snow white in colour, with a jet black tail.
