This explanation was lifted off the Walkabout website. Please check her out online, next best thing to being there. Just in case you didn't see it up there with all her other information, here it is again.
Deities assume a variety of forms, but are frequently depicted as having human or animal form. Some faiths and traditions consider it blasphemous to imagine or depict the deity as having any concrete form. They are usually immortal. They are commonly assumed to have personalities and to possess consciousness, intellects, desires, and emotions much like humans.
