A close look at the details of the image reveals that each symbol is
inevitably balanced with its opposite. Baphomet himself is an
androgynous character as it is bearing the characteristics of both
sexes: female breasts and a rod representing the erect phallus. The
concept of androgeneity is of a great importance in occult philosophy as
it is representing the highest level of initiation in the quest of
becoming “one with God”.
Baphomet’s phallus is actually Hermes’ Caduceus – a rod intertwined
with two serpents. This ancient symbol is has been representing
Hermetism for centuries. The Caduceus esoterically represents the
activation of chakras, from the base of the spine to the pineal gland,
using serpentine power (hence, the serpents) or Astral Light.

Out of curiosity, I did some reading about Baphomet, and it inspired me to draw a unicorn version of them!
I find it interesting to learn the real meaning behind pagan and occult symbols, since we’re surrounded by so much off-base and negative portrayals of them. What I discovered is that Baphomet is not a representation the devil, and symbolizes dichotomy and equilibrium, harmony between opposites.
