Witches and wizards are people thought to possess magical powers or to command supernatural forces. They appear in the myths and folktales of many cultures.
Bad or Good? In many myths and legends, witches are evil, dishonest, or dangerous. Some cultures do not consider them fully human. Mosty considered supernatural related to forces beyond the normal world; could be magical or miraculous.
Not all witches and wizards are evil. Some myths and folktales feature good spirits or magicians who help people. These are said to practice „white magic” rather than the „black magic” of the evil witches and wizards. Remember The Wonderful Wizard of Oz?
Legendary Witches and Wizards. Witches take many forms. The traditional image in European and American folklore is that of a wrinkled old woman, perhaps wearing a black robe and a cone-shaped hat. These witches communicate with evil spirits called familiars, which often take the form of a black cat. According to legend, Japanese witches have owls as familiars, and African witches have monkeys.
We have a 2 fish – one orange and one black as familiars. They support us in the design process.
