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.

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 .
