Gothic style goblet
Don’t let his bad reputation scare you away. While the uninitiated often call Baphomet a demon, he’s far from it. References to Baphomet go back as far as 1098, but the goat-headed figure shown here dates to the drawing by a French ceremonial magician Eliphas Levi in 1856.
A raised design of Baphomet is on the front accented by his curved horns and wings. Intertwining snakes form a caduceus with the stem. The caduceus is long associated with medicine and healing, but also relates to the messengers of the gods, Hermes and Iris (commonly regarded as the personal messenger of Hera). On the base, human skulls rest on a pentagram.
The cup has a steel insert for drinking and easy cleaning. Measures approximately 3.5 x 3 x 6.75 inches tall (7.6 x 8.2 x 17.1 cm).
Baphomet is known for:
- Being Misunderstood
- Representing Many Traditions
- Representing Parallels Across Belief Systems
- Confronting Paradoxes
- Questioning Traditions and Institutions
- Association with the Sigil of Baphomet
