Maurice Bessy Sigil of Baphomet Cloisonne’ Medallion
“During his years of research into the “Black Arts,” Anton LaVey had come across [a book by Maurice Bessy: A Pictorial History of Magic and the Supernatural] and added it to his collection. So when he chose to metamorphose his magic circle, “The Order of the Trapezoid,” into the Church of Satan, he decided that this particular symbol was the one which most fully embodied the principles which were the bedrock of the first aboveground Satanic church.
The pentagram (pentalpha) comes from the Pythagorean tradition. The goat’s or ram’s head within it refers to the Goat of Mendes, a symbol of the Egyptian Neter Amon, who was called “the hidden one, he who abides in all things, the soul of all phenomena” and is thus the closest Neter to the Dark Force which is seen to permeate and motivate all nature. The two concentric circles which contain the word “Leviathan” written in Hebrew (starting at the lowermost point and moving counterclockwise) stem from the traditions of the Ophite (serpent) Jews, and this is the essence of the Dragon of the Abyss, descended from Tiamat, sometimes symbolized as an ouroboros (serpent biting its own tail forming a circle). Thus, in one sigil, we find a confluence of several cultures’ approach to embodying what we call Satan.”
Proudly wear one as a member of the Church of Satan, or simply someone who wants to show admiration for the religion set forth by Anton Szandor LaVey in 1966 and under the wonderful administration and growth of Magus Peter H Gilmore and Magistra Peggy Nadramia!
