Gilmore: Goat of Mendes painting

“Goat of Mendes” by Magus Peter H. Gilmore

Today, in honor of Magus Gilmore’s 62nd Birthday, Satanme is releasing his 1982 painting Goat of Mendes as a full-sized print in multiple configurations. Because of this image’s “adult nature,” you must be 18 years old to purchase this print. The actual product will not contain the “Censored” graphics you see here to make it safe for social media. “My painting Goat of Mendes was inspired by both the infamous Éliphas Lévi Baphomet drawing published in Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie, 1856, and its face by a work of Austin Osman Spare which appeared on the cover of MAN, MYTH […]

Regarding the Netflix/Sabrina Lawsuit

Recently, The Satanic Temple has filed a suit against Netflix over a depiction of the symbolic deity Baphomet in their series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Church of Satan Sigil of Baphomet

The Origin of the Goat of Mendes “Man relies on symbolism and metaphor when building a personal conceptual framework for understanding the universe in which he lives. He has always invented his gods using his carnal brain.” – Peter H. Gilmore, The Satanic Scriptures In ancient Egyptian theology, it was believed that a vital essence existed in every living person. This spark of life was referred to as the ka, and it was thought to have been created by a deity at the moment of conception. When a person died, the Egyptians believed that the ka would leave the body […]
