Baphomet dons his fearsome "Troll" aspect.

Satanic Temple unveils 7-foot goat-headed Baphomet statue for Oklahoma Capitol

The 7-foot-tall monument would include a goat-headed Baphomet figure sitting cross-legged on a stone slab, flanked by two smiling children. The monument would also include quotes from poets Lord Byron and William Blake. [...]

After other groups -- including PETA and the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster -- asked for their own displays, the Oklahoma City Capitol Preservation Commission placed a moratorium on new monuments at the statehouse. But the Satanic Temple insists erecting a monument of their own is within their constitutional rights. [...]

The group hopes to raise $20,000 by January 17 to build the monument.

"We trust that this unique monument will also prove a favorite tourist attraction to Oklahoma's Capitol for years to come," Greaves remarked.

    What an odd depiction of Baphomet. Sleeveless t-shirt? Did he just come from the gym?
