The symbol of Baphomet was used by the Knights Templar to represent Satan and throughout history, many different names have been given to this symbol including ‘The Goat of Mendes’, ‘The Goat of a Thousand Young’ and ‘The Black Goat’. The Baphomet is often associated with black magic.
In the 19th century, the name of Baphomet became associated with the occult and in 1854, Eliphas Levi – a 19th Century occultist, published “Dogmas and Rituals of High Magic”, in which he included an image he had drawn himself which he described as Baphomet and “The Sabbatic Goat”, showing a winged humanoid goat with a torch on its head between its horns (see photo below) and the sign of the pentagram on the forehead. This image has become the best-known representation of Baphomet.
The horns are detachable to reduce the risk of damage in transit.
