Here is a relevant example, this Sculpture represents a clear and deliberate attempt to Pervert the Positive Symbolism of the Equine. To a true Pagan, such Animals are Holy, so what possible purpose does this sculpture serve other than to Profane that Symbolism? The significance of Symbols and the Energy they convey is glossed-over and down-played to the lay-man, yet Symbols surround us and are used extensively in our World. They are everywhere and yet Symbolic Literacy is not encouraged: Why? Symbols are connected to Thought-Patterns and complex associations, those in Positions of Power know this; they also know that assuming control of the associations that a Symbol carries is an effective way to Control the concepts and ideals that a Symbol represents. Note that the God Pan was depicted as a Cloven-Hooved, half-Goat, Half-Man Therianthrope: Who once stood for the Primal Energies of The Natural World. He is now represented as Satan himself.
