This picture is about how a shaman heals people by transforming his head into the head of an animal. The secret of this practice is that the maestro learns to think like the animal and share its instincts. If he is a giant armadillo for example, as seen at the top, which has armoured scales to shield it from harm, a shaman can perform soplos with the power of this animal to enable a person to fall from a high tree without injury. To do this the shaman must chant its icaro and experience the animal�s hypnotism, concentration and instinct.
