Inspiration for Goats painting was three prominent representatives of rural life. The goat is an extremely attractive character, as it combines some of the greatest virtues that a person can ever possibly dream of. Qualities such as independence, perseverance, and purposefulness, accompanied by a cheerful temper and curious nature. This is the formula for success.
Goats are one of the first animals that man domesticated more than 10,000 years ago. As such, legends and myths logically culminate in a huge number of symbolic meanings. Our representatives, like their fellows, love to climb, and the climb itself speaks of progress and sure achievements. The goat roams and lives on rocks and mountains at impossible heights. She approaches the abyss with ease and enthusiasm, and this is exactly the right point of view to easily and painlessly overcome any obstacle – with intelligence and composure.
In Greek mythology, Pan is a satyr – a god who is half man, half goat. Patron of music /especially the flute/ and of herds and their shepherds. It symbolizes power, potency, and intoxication. A goat nursed the baby God Zeus. Goats lead the chariot of Thor, the northern god of fertility, lightning, and thunder.
The sign Capricorn is represented by the image of the goat.
Capricorns are a very powerful philosophical sign and are highly intelligent. They apply their knowledge to practical matters and struggle to maintain order and stability. They are good organizers and achieve their goals through purposeful and systematic actions. Patient and persistent, they know how to achieve any goal. In countless ceremonies, the goat was sacrificed in an attempt to atone for human sins. This goat aspect makes us examine our ideals of good and evil, justice, guilt, and responsibility. It reminds us to honor ourselves, honor our ideals, and take advantage of all the perspectives and opportunities presented to us in order to achieve our goals. With great risks come great rewards.
