Very similar to doctor, only caring for our animal nature. Jung write of this in saying Christ himself symbolically appears as the Lamb of God or the Fish, but he is also the serpent exalted on the cross, the lion, and in rarer cases the unicorn.

That is particularly so of humans who are often divided from their fundamental animal self. See animals; doctor.
