I Bought A Goat

Several months ago at the monthly staff meeting at work it was suggested that we needed a scapegoat. So I bought one. It arrived on Tuesday, January 6, 2004. And I presented it to everyone at the staff meeting on Thursday. Rocky is very popular so far.

See Rocky the Mountain Goat

[In conversation with Kaaren I confused the ancient Jewish ritual with the Greek "tragoidia" (tragedy) which means "goat song". The Greeks did sacrifice goats but apparenty not for the attonement of the community. Our word "scapegoat" comes from the Biblical reference to the ceremony for Yom Kippur where the sins of the people are symbolically placed upon the head of a goat after which he is sent into the wilderness.]

he's cute!

Great idea! Brings some humor into the office.

Whats the statue of the woman holding the black sphere? I like it.

Statue of a woman

The statue of a woman I bought from Jenifer Kemper years ago. I understand that it is from a standard mold that potters can buy. She decorated it with a Moon Crown and a pentagram necklace. So it is a votive statue of the Goddess in Maiden aspect. The ball in her hands is an amethyst sphere. I have put various things in her hands over time, for various reasons.

Re: Statue of a woman

Its really nice. I'd like to have a mother statue holding a baby.
