If you were watching the first season of Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and thought the statue of Baphomet looked similar to The Satanic Temple's statue of Baphomet, you weren't alone.

The Satanic Temple's co-founder Lucien Graves took to Twitter to confirm the organization was taking legal action regarding the design of the statue.

 

 

Graves later tweeted a side by side comparison of the two statues, which both include Baphomet with two fingers raised up while two children look on.

Graves claims that the organization spent a year and a half designing the statue, only to have Netflix appropriate the design for the television show. He also thinks that the show's appropriation of their imagery will lead to people misinterpreting their own design as evil.

He told SF Gate:

"I feel that the use of our particular image that is recognized as our own central icon (being) displayed fictionally as central to some cannibalistic cult has real world damaging effects for us."

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina released on Netflix on October 26.
