Head of an elephant, eyes of a rhino, tail of an ox and paws of a tiger. The Baku, also known as 'dream eaters' are generally binign creatures that aid humans be devouring nightmares of the evil spirits that cause them, and some beliefs say that the Baku can even change the bad dreams that it eats and turn them into good luck. However other tales tell of the Baku being more troublesome by eating ALL dreams or simly depriving people of sleep all together. The symbol present in the picture means Baku and is traditionally painted in bedrooms or printed on pillowcases to ward off bad dreams. Date: 3-1-08
