For thousands of years; religion, mythology and folklore have been replete with accounts of supernatural beings. They can be good, bad and evil forms which are endowed with powers of shape shifting into appearances which can mystify and horrify us. In many cultures, the men sought the help of their totemic animal, a wolf, raven, owl or whatever animal gave them its power for his own quest.
This gave birth to the idea of shape shifting into the persona of the totemic animal. It gave rise to two legged animals with heads of animals and birds. These intermediary beings were thought to be stronger than the common human beings, who can more effectively penetrate the mysteries of life and understand the intricate and complex relationship between animals, man and God. Belief behind this was that, one can best acquire supernatural powers in animal shape and spirits can be approached through assistance of animals.
