As a controversial monument is one step closer to being a part of the grounds surrounding the state capitol.

The Satanic Temple announced plans to put a monument glorifying the Dark Lord on the front lawn of the capitol. Friday morning, we're getting our first look at the actual monument.

Until now, all we've seen are drawings. Now, Vice.com has obtained a picture of the monument showing Baphomet sitting beneath a pentagram with two children looking up at him.

The statue was created in response to the Ten Commandments statue outside of our capitol building that State Representative Mike Ritze paid for with his own money.

Once it's complete, a Temple spokesperson said it will be installed at the capitol regardless of the Capitol Preservation Commission's ongoing battle with the ACLU to not allow it.

The monument should be finished in a few months. They're also working on a mold so they can build additional ones.
