Sun God
This is the shape of the male deity that appeals to me - inspiration is largely based on the leontocephaline statues, which proper identification still eludes the specialists in the field of antiquities. God appeals to me as a white lion crowned with a mane of blue flames and a pair of regal horns - signifying his role as the solar deity as lions have been associated with the sun in some cultures. The figure is sexually charged because the sex of the male deity appeals to me in an erotic manner, more so than the female deity whom I view as a maternal figure instead. The pair of ritual implements are based on the leontocephalines - a staff and a key. To me the staff represents shepherding thus command of creation, while the key represents god as the gateway to the mysteries. While the leontocephalines usually have each one snake entwining a body, I have used the hermetic snakes but more specifically the alchemical snakes. Like Apollo, the Sun God is a healer and conveyor of the truth. In alchemy, the caduceus is a potent symbol of both medicine and poison - the red one for life and the black one for death - so the Sun God possesses the answers to both. He stands on an orb and encased in it is a blue lotus which symbolizes the Universe, but more specifically the material world, because his role is the role of the Gnostic Demiurge, and the mother of all creation is the Star Goddess, Sophia, Wisdom.
