Baphomet by kyoht Baphomet by kyoht
He says: "Baaaa... rebel from your parents... baaaa... listen to loud music with lewd lyrics... baaaa... get a piercing.... baaaaa... dye your hair a neon color....BAAAAA!"

Lots of people associate Baphomet with satanism and bad stuff, whereas most of the time he was a symbol of cosmic unity or some such junk. To read more about this mythical character, go here - [link]

Good gosh, I really hate it when people associate baphomet with rebellion, loud music, and that stuff you mentioned. Makes me sick to my stomach. but people will always be people, and they should be accepted as anyone else. Everyone has flawed ideas about something.

Anyway, fantastic work. I love your rendition.

This is a great piece. Really dark. I try to capture a similar dark demonic satanic aesthetic in my work so I am really drawn to this one of yours. I've done several works now featuring Baphomet as the central figure and, yeah, you are right. People have all kinds of reactions to it.

originally the baphomet was the green man of paganistic lore, the modern version of this being wicca.

interesting, Im totally afraid of going in to deep with this mythical being, but he/she seems more like a harmonious being that represents the inner balance of sexuality, masculinity and feminine! You listen to Duncan Trussell? he talks about this;) great picture, very well done

yes you always need one bad so you can make the world better ...
The evil is only the product of the so-called good ..
without the *good there would not be evil
without the evil the good* couldt say ,they are good..

Dye your hair a neon color? check! XD (well, it's almost neon. It's bright turquoise, but nevermind..)

Baphomet! yay! my favorite "goat" x3 I just find the design and the whole symbolism about him/it to be really fascinating and cool. And whoa, this by far the best and most awesome version I've seen of Baphomet. LOVE IT! :D
and as always, your coloring skills and attention to detail is very impressive..! :o

Gotta admit, I first heard about Baphomet through La Vey's "Satanic Bible" and studying the religion for a while (never was a satanist, but I did find it to be extremely fascinating to learn about..! It's not as bad a religion as people think.. o.o Like how one of their laws is "you should never harm little children", that one sort of surprised me - with all the talk of how satanists sacrifice babies and stuff. If it hadn't been for all the focus on the ego, I wouldn't have minded being a La Vey'an satanist.. :3 sorry, ranting.. xD I'll stop.)
I'll go check out that link of yours... always interesting to learn more about the symbolism of Baphomet :)

oh, and needless to say, this goes straight to my favs :boogie:

Hmmm, I've noticed people have a tendancy to turn innocent things into satanic things.

"Hi! I practice Wicca! I worship a mother goddess and perform rituals to strengthen my personal energy and bring myself into unity with the world--"

"OMG UR A WITCH U R WORSHIPPING SATAN!!!!!!!"

XD Gotta love that...

Really great paiting here! I love how this COULD be a parody of how peopl see Baphomet but could also be quite serious.

lol the scenario you posted is just epic XD

Sometimes, I don't understand how or why some "innocent" things are "satanic", neither do I under why people want to claim that *this* is satanic despite the fact that *this* is just an ordinary subject/opinion/object/etc.

And yeah, *this* can be anything. :P

Forgive them lord for they do not know what their doing..these goats are being used as a face 4 evil ..i hope u baphomets carry yo own sunscreen,the fallen is laughing because he know all of yall r just gonna forget,soon you'll endure the eternal holiday with no margaritas just volcano cocktails,eternal suffering with no looking back just a third eye that envisions torment,eternal hypnosis its like sinning with no forgiveness...all thats gonna be left is memories of the times u were young and innocent..
