(QHA) - A satanic group unveiled designs Monday for a 7-foot-tall statue of Satan it wants to put at the Oklahoma state Capitol, where a Ten Commandments monument was placed in 2012, AP reports.
The New York-based Satanic Temple formally submitted its application to a panel that oversees the Capitol grounds, including an artist's rendering that depicts Satan as Baphomet, a goat-headed figure with horns, wings and a long beard that's often used as a symbol of the occult.
In the rendering, Satan is sitting in a pentagram-adorned throne with smiling children next to him.
'The monument has been designed to reflect the views of Satanists in Oklahoma City and beyond,' temple spokesman Lucien Greaves said in a statement.
The group already has raised nearly half of the $20,000 it says it needs to build the monument.
Capitol Preservation Commission recently placed a moratorium on considering any new requests.
