A trance buck is a distinctive type of therianthrope. These paintings tend to depict human figures with features that may include nasal blood, antelope heads and hoofs, arms in the backward position, hairs, lines from the top of the head and trailing streamers. Sometimes they hold flywhisks.
Often in kneeling positions that recall the posture into which some dancers fall when they enter trance. The streamers and the arms-back posture of some of these bucks, give the impression that they are flying, but others are probably kneeling on the ground.
