    DESCRIPTION

    25 cm or nearly 10" inches, poly-resin, black w/ dark gold highlights.

    Highly detailed "Baphomet" or Sabbatic Goat. Known as "Dhulqarnen" (Two Horned Lord) the god of witches represents the inherent desire and balanced intellect of the sorcerer; having some origins from the Sufi concept of 'ras el-fahmat' (head of knowledge) and from the Arabic root of FHM (meaning 'knowledge, understanding' and also 'black' revealing a balanced insight of power of the Infernal and Empyrean). The Sabbatic Goat is both a representation of the self-excellence of the Adept, also as a God (Deific Mask) of both chthonic and aerial planes of wisdom and power. Baphomet sits upon a pentagram base.

    This Baphomet statue is different from others with its' masculine chest rather than traditional female breasts of the Eliphas Levi Sabbatic Goat. 

    Adorn this powerful image of Baphomet upon your altar as the center of your sorcery and witchcraft.

     Since 1856, the name Baphomet has been associated with the "Sabbatic Goat" image drawn by Éliphas Lévi, which contains binary elements representing the "symbolization of the equilibrium of opposites"(e.g. half-human and half-animal, male and female, good and evil, etc.)

    In the 18th century, speculative theories arose that sought to tie the Knights Templar with the origins of Freemasonry. Bookseller, Freemason and Illuminatus[36] Christoph Friedrich Nicolai (1733–1811), in Versuch über die Beschuldigungen welche dem Tempelherrenorden gemacht worden, und über dessen Geheimniß (1782), was the first to claim that the Templars were Gnostics, and that "Baphomet" was formed from the Greek words βαφη μητȢς, baphe metous, to mean Taufe der Weisheit, "Baptism of Wisdom". Nicolai "attached to it the idea of the image of the supreme God, in the state of quietude attributed to him by the Manichaean Gnostics", according to F. J. M. Raynouard, and "supposed that the Templars had a secret doctrine and initiations of several grades", which "the Saracens had communicated ... to them".[38] He further connected the figura Baffometi with the pentagram of Pythagoras:

    What properly was the sign of the Baffomet, "figura Baffometi", which was depicted on the breast of the bust representing the Creator, cannot be exactly determined ... I believe it to have been the Pythagorean pentagon (Fünfeck) of health and prosperity: ... It is well known how holy this figure was considered, and that the Gnostics had much in common with the Pythagoreans. From the prayers which the soul shall recite, according to the diagram of the Ophite-worshippers, when they on their return to God are stopped by the Archons, and their purity has to be examined, it appears that these serpent-worshippers believed they must produce a token that they had been clean on earth. I believe that this token was also the holy pentagon, the sign of their initiation (τελειας βαφης μετεος).
