The effigies are action figures and drawings for my emotional needs. Like totems, sacred statuary, or voodoo dolls, these spirit selves provide me with an army of anthropomorphized images to ward off difficult people in my life. Likewise they can also give me access to goodness and self-confidence that might be in short supply.
