Interesting! The combination of pose and robes seems more than coincidence. Where is the statue located?

Currently on display in the National Museum of American History in Washington.

There's an interesting article about the history of the statue here:

Quote :
His Transcendental Magic, it's Doctrine and Ritual is a translation of Levi's magical treatise Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie which he wrote in 1855 after Bulwer-Lytton's encouragement. The work features Levi's famous image of Baphomet, a goat headed figure sitting cross legged.

I took this from our Levi article. Looks like the statue may have come first Cool .
