Baphomet (Gnostic Series)
Baphomet, whose two hands form the sign of hermetism, expresses the perfect harmony of mercy with justice. The flame of intelligence shining between his horns is the mystic light of the universal balance, the image of the soul elevated above matter, as the flame, whilst being tied to matter, shines above it. The beast’s head expresses the horror of the sinner to bear the punishment exclusively in sake of the soul. The erect male genitals symbolizes eternal life while humanity is represented by the two female breasts…the androgyn attributes that unite with the goat because they are one and the same.
Created with a real goat skull, artificial male appendage & flaming orb w/no effects added digitally.
Featured at “Sacred Visions” @ The Scarab Club on 11/15/2012, as well as Dirty Show 9 and DAMNED II.
