Baphomet, the divine sum of the universe, comes from the famous book Dogme et rituel de la haute magie 1861 (1856), or the Danish title 'D en Højere Magis Dogme og Ritual' . The image of Baphomet is the frontispiece in the part dealing with rituals.
The illustration is fascinating in all its simplicity, with intricate details and symbolic elements. If you are into the occult, the spiritual and the magical, then this poster is a must-have for you.

Baphomet, the deity the Knights Templar were accused of worshiping, and who later became part of many different occult and Western esoteric traditions. The name Baphomet first appeared in texts during the Inquisition of the Knights Templar in 1307. Baphomet gained great popularity in the 19th century, when there was keen speculation about the reasons behind the extinction of the Knights Templar order.
In various occult and mystical traditions, Baphomet is seen as a symbol of balance. Despite both expressions as deity and balance, Baphomet has nevertheless also been accused of being a demon. Since 1856, the name Baphomet has been closely associated with this "Sabbatic Goat" as shown in the illustration, which was created by Éliphas Lévi.
The illustration of Baphomet represents the balance of opposites, such as half-human and half-animal, male and female, good and evil, and so on. Lévi's intention was to describe and visualize his idea around

balance.
