      Zoomorphism is the shaping of something in animal form or terms. Examples include:

      Art that imagines humans as non-human animals;
      Art that portrays one species of animal like another species of animal;
      Art that creates patterns using animal imagery, or animal style;
      Deities depicted in animal form, such as exist in ancient Egyptian religion;
      Cartozoology: The science of discovering and studying animals street layouts as they appear in maps;
      Therianthropy: the ability to shapeshift into animal form;
      The tendency of viewing human behaviour in terms of the behaviour of animals, analogous to anthropomorphism, which views animal behaviour in human terms

      The word derives from the Greek ζωον (zōon), meaning animal, and μορφη (morphē), meaning shape or form.

      Early religions attributed to animals unsuspected powers.
      Strength elephant, monkey ability, ferocity wolf, dog or cat loyalty, all these things have been explaining the different forms …
      Bells were also associated with these wild animals and people have changed in totem.

      For domestic animals, humans turn bells in power tools to protect them or make them more beautiful.
      Thus were created the bells for cattle, spread all over the world, in all cultures and ancient civilizations:
