Evocative of a carcass hanging on a barn wall, this piece contrasts the sweet cuddly nature of sheep with the hard stubborn nature of the goat, and the idea that the metaphorical goat finds its creation rooted in the existence of sheep. This is not aesthetically "pretty" but rather, brutal and primitive, with wool that had no processing except washing. The wood is a driftwood board full of rusty nails, and the piece itself is nailed to this board in a 5 pointed crucifixion.
A traditional symbol of materiality, wealth and individualism, the dessicated presentation here of Baphomet is a commentary on the limits of these things.
Made with a combination of wet and dry felting techniques, the piece is 12" tall and 17" wide.
