Baphomet statue in resin painted in black and with gold details.
Baphomet is a representation of one of the most classic symbols of magic.
Baphomet “ Baphomet in Italian” is a pagan idol, whose veneration the Knights Templar were accused of.
Recurring in the occult literature of the nineteenth century, there are various descriptions and iconographies: an idol with a human skull, a head with two faces, a cat-idol and a bearded head. The name was then taken up again, in the same century, by supporters of occultism. The etymology of the name, controversial, is still uncertain today. The name of Baphomet, as Levi’s illustration also suggests, has also been associated over time with the figure of Satan.
The statue is 25 cm high.
Designed by the alternative brand Nemesis Now, this mystical figurine is crafted from the highest quality resin before being painstakingly hand painted. Leaning in the center of a pentagram, the terrestrial globe serves as the seat of Baphomet. Sitting cross-legged on top of the world, Baphomet sits, symbolizing the sum total of the universe. Legs ending in split hooves, Asclepius’ staff rises from their groin. Their right arm is raised in a magical blessing with the word SOLVE written on the forearm, while their left arm is stretched down and out in an inviting fashion, the forearm bearing the word COACULA. Their three-horned goat head looks straight forward as their wings stretch out behind them. Adored by occultists from Jacques de Molay’s Templars to Alistair Crowley, Baphomet has long been a symbol of the heresy of free thought and forbidden knowledge.
