The Satanic Temple is putting the finishing touches on the Baphomet statue it plans to place on the Oklahoma State Capitol grounds.

The New York-based group announced its plans earlier this year in response to a Ten Commandments monument that was placed on the capitol grounds in 2012.

Earlier this week, a reporter for Vice was given a sneak peek of the work in progress.

The group wanted to raise $20,000 for the statue, but ended up raising almost $30,000, according to their fundraising website.

The commission that oversees the Capitol grounds says no new statues are being placed on the ground until a pending lawsuit over the Ten Commandments monument is settled.
