Antropomórfico.

anthropos = man (in Greek)
morphic = related to shape (in Greek)

The word is virtually identical in English and Spanish. Did you not notice their similarities, or you didn't know the word in English? It is a pretty commonly used word in history, art, philosophy and other social sciences, actually.

I believe it's misspelled. It should be "antropomórfico/a" and in English it means "anthropomorphic".

Adjective form of anthropomorphism - Attribution of human motivation, characteristics, or behavior to inanimate objects, animals, or natural phenomena.
