The concept of “sacrifice” seems to be a common theme to the four designs released in late January (2021). It was completely unintentional but it makes us think that maybe the times we live now have something to do with it.
The “Moloch” or “Molech” is said to be an ancient god (allegedly worshiped by the Amonites) that became very popular in the Old Testament, because of the disturbing sacrifices required by this deity. The most common rituals usually involved the immolation of small children, while the participants danced and made orgies.
Moloch’s was visually portrayed by a man with bovine head, sometimes holding a child. He is often represented as a huge bronze statue with (seven) burning chambers.
