Demon Spotted Inside King Charles' New Portrait Is Satan, Baphomet Or Stretched Imagination?

Netizens are reacting to the British Royal's latest portrait.

King Charles' new portrait, unveiled at Buckingham Palace, has sparked a massive row online. Unveiled on Tuesday, the painting quickly became a target for trolling due to its red brushstrokes and juxtapositioning. Many social media users likened the red marks to blood and some even suggested it had a satanic presence.
A viral video suggesting that copying, pasting, and flipping the portrait reveals a sinister face resembling 'Baphomet,' the deity associated with the Knights Templar, further intensified the discussion. Baphomet, depicted as half-human, half-animal with a goat-like head, was originally drawn by French occultist ?liphas Lévi in the 1800s. Some social media users noted that a similar pattern appears to emerge from the flowery background of the portrait.
Many people took to social media to wonder whether it was a "sheer coincidence." Some even called it "villainous."
One user on X wrote, "Who approved King Charles III's new portrait cuz it looks like he's in hell?!"
Another user added, "I've heard a lot of conspiracy theories that if you mirror the King Charles portrait a creepy face is revealed."
"Nobody cares about the butterfly. They want to know why the portrait looks like it was dipped in blood," a third user expressed a similar sentiment.
While a number of portraits of royals have been made over the years, this one has sparked a massive discussion on social media. Notably, the 8.5 by 6.5-foot portrait of the British Monarch was painted by Jonathan Yeo, an artist known for his previous works featuring former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, actor Nicole Kidman, and peace advocate Malala Yousafzai.
