Baphomet by AbigailLarson Baphomet by AbigailLarson
Halloween is coming! I thought I'd show my anticipation by commemorating a beloved ancient god. I mean, he can be whoever you want. Baphomet, the Horned God, the Beast of Bray Road, or the Goat Man at Old Alton Bridge. I don't know. Maybe they're all the same entity...

I think I like your version better than Pathfinders version. He has more personality in this picture than in an entire sculpture.

This reminds me of the character Brimstone from Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Great book, and now I'll picture this drawing when I read his character :)

There was a time when I read a bit more widely, Abigail. Baphomet is possessed of an interesting symbolism, which got me thinking about the way one story insides of another. Even now I'm struck by... Levi's? observation that the only human elements are those of labor and procreation.

I think think your interpretation is fresh, and I'm intrigued by the elements you bring into it.

Levi's interpretation isn't wrong, altogether, if a little misguided. Like many men of his time, women were considered very mysterious, and sometimes even evil, so the depiction of a forbidden god with both male and female parts is understandable. Glad you like my version!

The Beast of Bray Road is a wolf man as far as I know, but great pic! The first thing I thought was Pan.

Thanks! And does anyone really know what the Beast of Bray Road truly is? But yes, a wolflike creature has been reported. Generally the babbling eyewitness accounts seem to sound like, "it had....legs! Fur!" before they pass out and are never heard from again. Oh! I forgot to list Pan! But I kinda lump him in the "Horned God" category...
