The effort to control events, animals, or persons by extraordinary means that are imitative or analogical in form.
For example, a doll or effigy may be stabbed or burned as a means of casting a spell upon a living being, or red ochre powder may be used to restore the glow of life to a pallid body.

Sympathetic magic, also known as imitative magic, is a type of magic based on imitation or correspondence.
