Description
Lucifer Goat Skull on slate - - Capra pyrenaica - 14×20×40 cm
1996 - France - non-CITES species

The billy goat (in Greek τράγος - "tragedy" - or, depending on the time and place- "chimera", χιμαιρια) was worshiped in the Greek rural community of Arcadia as a symbol of fertility, since its inhabitants were too poor to own bulls. It is a large caprine ruminant mammal, male of a goat. It is characterized by its horns in the shape of a lyre (in some of them the horns curve backwards), by their hard fur and by having a narrow beard on the lower jaw. Depending on the different places, it is also known as goat, buck, caprine, billies, etc.
This representation is made with a goat skull and a black slate shield, with an inverted pentagram with the signs of the devil on the forehead of the skull.
It will be packed with a double package for a greater transport safety.
