I have been wanting to buy a Baphomet for my wall, To start off my ritual chamber, But, I was thinking about making one from sticks out of the woods.
Sense Satanism is about the dark forces of nature, Wouldn't using things from nature help with the use of magic?
Maybe I am way off on this. It just seems to me that it would help with the magic process.

You don't necessarily need to buy an official Sigil wall plaque. I just took a square canvas and painted my own on. I suggest finding an equal sided pentagon though, just for the Pentagram within the sigil.

Not only is it cheaper, but it's more personal as well. As for my Baphomet, it looks VERY similar to the one that is used on the Satanic Bible etc, but it does have it's little flaws that make it mine. \:\)

Thanks.
I will see what I can do. My art skills are not very good. I may have problems with the symbols and the goats head.

That's funny, because I had no problems with those per se; it was the rings and the Pentagram that I had most trouble with. Thing is, if something needs to be exact, I won't be satisfied until it's exact. The Hebrew characters and the goat's head wasn't an issue here, as the results resemble what I wanted them to anyway.

I don't mind flaws, I just want it to look nice. Because it will be the focal point of the alter.

I would also think that using antler or bone would add some nice "earthy" touches, as well as giving an eccentric/bizarre/macabre feel to the piece.

Thanks again Nemesis, I new there was a reason i liked you.

That's actually quite an idea. Of course, it would depend on one's personal preference really, but there ya go. \:\)

I wouldn't kill a animal just use its parts. But it is already dead, I might as well use it to aid me in my magic, Or whatever i may need it for.

Never suggested anything of the sort. I wouldn't have thought you to disrespect living creatures anyway.

In every form of magic I flirted with in my younger years there was always more power in an object which you manufacture with your own hands... It may be the true power of man is the ability to take an idea and make something real out of it... No other animal has perfected this ability yet...

Great point Ta2zz. I thought using something home made would produce more power. But I wasn't sure if it would wishful thinking so to speak. This will be my first time trying to perform magic, And i just want to make sure i cover everything and do it right. Thanks for everyones input on this. It is much appreciated.

Don't bother too much with rules. Just do what you feel is natural.

A Pentagram made entirely of gnarled wood, hide, and animal bones would be pretty badass... with a horned goat skull in the middle. I'm still working on my own setup as well, but it probably won't be that extravagant. Maybe if I get an old rustic New England style home secluded in the middle of the woods... someday.

That would be awsome.
But i felt that making a Sigil Baphomet would help with my magic Zebu. Just was wondering on people thoughts on this. Thanks for your input.
