Reply:  Only a complete form of one of the members of God's Chariot is prohibited. That is one animal with the faces of a person, a bull, a lion, and an eagle all on one creature.
I have never seen one of those.
Also prohibited is a person in 100% complete form. Also not common. Even Michelangelo's David is not complete....
Look at the Yoreh Deah 141:4
