Goat of Mendes by Magus Peter H. Gilmore
The title of my painting is Goat of Mendes, done in 1982. It 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 & MAGIC. I thought it would be fun to do my own version of this classic image. It was first published as the frontispiece for my book The Satanic Scriptures in 2007.
The original hangs in the Ritual Chamber in The Black House of the Haunted Hudson Valley.
