In the above image we see a harpy with two tails, horns, fangs, winged ears, and long wavy hair. Harpy from the Greek word harpazein (ἁρπάζειν), “to snatch” .
The harpy is an imaginary creature. Carl Jung says “in a man’s mind the harpy is a anima picture or symbol” . She is a “particularly lovely woman who devours a man” [ibid]. Jung says that she represents the “dismembering powers” of the anima.
