Often depicted as a winged man with a goat-head, this supernatural being has been associated with the Devil since the 1960s, when  the Church of Satan adopted it as their official symbol by adding an inverted pentagram to the figure.

Originally, Baphomet was a deity that the Knight Templars were said to have worshipped. Intimately associated with the Occult and Witchcraft, this pagan deity is believed to represent the sum of the entire universe and all its opposing forces.

The name Baphomet has been in use since at least the 1090s, when it was found in an early Crusader’s letter. The knight templars, a medieval Catholic military order, were believed to worship Baphomet, although it's not fully known if this was a false accusation that the Church created in order to persecute the members for suspected heresy.

The beautiful design you see on this cameos is based on an image ("Sabbatic Goat"), created in the 19th century by Éliphas Lévi, a french occultist/magic practicioner.

Nowadays, due to its association with Satanism, Baphomet is (wrongly) considered to be the symbol of Devil but this is not necessary true for those who are aligned with the occult.
