Baphomet :The Temple Guardian
In 1997 e.v. WLP/SSP commissioned this altar statue of Baphomet. This piece was inspired by the famous line drawing by Eliphas Levi, the great French magus of the 19th century which was composed as the frontispiece to second section of his masterwork "The Ritual and Dogma of High Magic".
Levi devised this picture, which synthesizes many elements and symbols
from a variety of religious and magickal traditions to illustrate the concept of
"astral light, the great magical agent," the medium through which all
seeming miracles are performed. Because
this drawing was originally intended to be correctly understood by only
initiates of the Mystery Traditions, in more recent times it has been
greatly misunderstood, maligned and sometimes abused by the ignorant and those
who are unable to perceive its true meaning. Levi alternately titled this
drawing "The Sabbatic Goat" (in reference to rites once held in honor
of the divine goat of Mendes in ancient Egypt). It is also "Baphomet of the
Templars" ( the order of the Knights Templar, the forerunners of modern
magicians and Witches have often recognized this symbol as one of the
many representations of the Horned God, although this figure is never
worshipped. Rather, we recognize
and venerate the principle for which it stands. To quote Levi, "Baphomet is not a God: he is the sign of
initiation. He is also the
hieroglyphic figure of the great divine TETRAGRAMMATON...he is a hold-over from
the cherubs of the ark and the holy of holies...he is the guardian of the key to
the temple...the goat which is represented in our frontispiece bears upon it's
forehead the sign of the pentagram with one point in the ascendant, which is
sufficient to distinguish it as a symbol of light... between his horns he
carries the torch of life, and the living soul of this torch is God...it is also
the type of the soul exalted above matter, even while cleaving to matter, as the
flame cleaves to the torch."
