Baphomet is a mystical icon first associated with the Knights Templar during the Inquisition. He takes the form of a half-goat, half-man with wings and female breasts. The most well-known version is from a drawing by Eliphas Levi, which later appeared on the Devil card in the Rider-Waite Tarot.
To some people, Baphomet represents initiation, occult mastery, or even the sum total of the universe (male and female, good and evil, thought and instinct, etc). To others, he represents Satan or Lucifer mocking the authority of God. Like the Sphinx of Egypt, Baphomet is a creature of many parts whose true nature is difficult to grasp.
