Mitzvah #14 - Do not create your own idols

It's a Mitzvah not to create idols that one will worship.

One who makes an idol by himself, or who one asks somebody else to make him an idol to worship has transgressed and deserves 39 lashes.

Applies to everybody, all the time, everywhere.

Pasuk: You shall not make for yourselves any idols (2nd of the Ten Commandments - Shmot 20:4)
