Image: Waking Kumbhakarna

(British Library: Mewar Ramayana)

From the Library site: Ravana had another brother, the giant Kumbhakarna, who was so terrible that Brahma put him under a curse to spend most of his life asleep. Ravana has sent an army of his demons to wake the monster. First they make the most enormous noise, and when that fails they hit him with weapons and hammers. Herds of horses, camels and elephants are driven over him, and a thousand demons run up and down his body.

You can read more about Kumbhakarna at Wikipedia.
