THE GOAT

The goat, at home
on mountain slopes as well as on flat ground,
is a symbol of agility and determination.

The male goat, because of its reproductive prowess,
is a symbol of virility, vitality, potency and stamina.
It represents the energy of the creative and regenerative.

In mythololy and symbolism, the Greek goat god Pan
lives in the woods and loves seducing maidens.

And a goat's head is a satanic symbol.
The horned animal can be Satan, big bad Baphomet,
the goat-headed one leading the witches sabbath
and spreading evil all over earth.

But sometimes a goat is just a goat
and this goat is blue.

This picture was shot in Oud-Rekem, a cute Limburg village. The goat's head is decoration on the outside wall of a farm there.
