A name of the four holy creatures in Judaism known as Tetramorphs. They had human forms with oxen feet and an ox’s tail. They had four wings, two that covered their front and two on their back. They each had four faces; a human face in front, a bull’s face to the left, an eagles head behind and a lion’s face to the right. They darted about like lightning fire blazed between them. They are depicted in a picture that shows a throne in a vault above their heads of which a man of fire sits. This visualization is meditated upon by Kabbalists. The Hayoth are also mentioned in Biblical scriptures as four animals of the four faces mentioned above with four wings each.
