Ravana Shakes Mt. Kailasa

Cave 21, Ellora
In this sculpture panel at the south base of the temple, a demon named Ravana (below, with multiple heads and arms) shakes Mt. Kailasa, annoying Shiva and Parvati in their mountain home. Shiva easily quells the earthquake by pressing down on the mountain with his toe.
