Looks like the Statue of Liberty? Also the pose is reminiscent of the baphomet one. It's also fairly androgynous.

Maybe the goddess Mary a bit? Not sure about the baphomet picture you shared; posing, tats, and chesty expressions are very different but yes androgynous indeed. Nice word you used there, your pretty smart... :D

Thanks. That's interesting to hear because I've heard a theory that the Catholic church combined Isis and Mary to create a figure of worship. This is counter to one of the 10 commandments that said not to worship graven images. Supposedly it's part of a strategy the church used to entice new followers: combine the gods people already worship with Christianity.

No surprise​ there. The worship of the sacred feminine is almost always the mother. Even the feminine has a trinity -maiden, mother, and crone.

Do some research into Columbia, which our nation's capital is named after and it will really put some pieces together.

The holy trinity in almost all pagan religions was mother, father, and son. Isis is the mother in the trinity with Horus and Osiris. This trinity is replicated in many other cultures through history.

The Catholics borrowed a lot of pagan elements. So it's absolutely no wonder they adopted the mother as an idol of worship.

Yes thank you for reminding me, there is another interesting statue that the Catholics borrowed from the pagans that I want to share, possibly later today.

Nice to see you; a happy second day of the 1st month of the Gregorian Calendar named after the Roman god Janus for January :D

"Ancient Roman statue of Isis, in the Collection of Greek and Roman Antiquities in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna. First half of the 2nd century, found in Naples, Italy. Made out of black and white marble. Inv. # I 158. Isis, originally an Egyptian goddess, was increasingly popular amongst Romans, who made her one of their own, with Roman attire, features and dress."
