In the U.S., a satanic church filed for the installation of a two-meter-high statue of the devil. Satanists want to erect the monument next to the buildings of the government and the Supreme Court of Oklahoma, where a monument to Ten Commandments was erected in 2012.
According to the project, the devil will be depicted in the form of Baphomet - a winged creature with goat's head and a long beard. In addition, the sculpture will have figures of smiling children. As planned, passers-by will be able to sit on the lap of Satan "for inspiration and contemplation."
A spokesperson for the satanic temple said that the monument is to reflect the views of Satanists inside and outside Oklahoma City.
