Words of Wisdom… with a Satanic Twist

A statue of Satan under construction to be placed on the front lawn of the statehouse in Oklahoma City. Standing seven feet tall, the design features Satan in the form of Baphomet. This goat-headed being has wings and a beard. He is surrounded by a pair of children. The monument has been designed to reflect the views of Satanists in Oklahoma City and beyond. The statue will also have a functional purpose as a chair where people of all ages may sit on the lap of Satan for inspiration and contemplation. (Image courtesy of The Satanic Temple, New York)
