The ancient concept of the werewolf jaguar is reflected in the sculptural images of the half-man-half-cat (1500-400 BC), echoes the beliefs of the South American Indians, who believe that tribal shamans can turn into jaguars at any moment. Jaguar shamans cure diseases, bring luck to hunters, and predict the future.
The jaguar is the messenger of the spirits of the forest. In the tradition of shamanism, the appearance of the jaguar is one of the most common totems of the shaman, it symbolizes his spirit. Only a strong and powerful shaman could possess a jaguar totem.
The cult of the jaguar is part of animal magic and belongs to the Magic of the Totem clans.

These rites were practiced in the ancient civilizations of South America. During the ritual, under the influence of music (the rhythm of drums) and dance (movements imitating the Jaguar), a person was transformed into a beast.
