A scarce and one of a kind old hinged ritual human skull mounted on a rococo brass stand. The inside of the cranium is brass lined and engraved with an inverted 5 pointed star with two of these points made up by the horns of a goat’s head. This is the sign of Baphomet, The black Goat. It has been overlaid on a correctly orientated 5 pointed star of David. In the occipital region the letters B.V.M are engraved and next to this is the date 1871 England/France.
