Description

The fetishes were used to produce bill for driving. It is one of the oldest and most widespread spells, traces of it can be found since the Paleolithic, and is based on the general principle of similarity: as the effigy is pierced, so it should happen in the intended victim. Pins, nails or other sharp objects fixed in statuettes or other things in which the personality of the individual to be offended has been transfused would produce pain, disease and death.
