Griffin Statue, Mythological Creature, Ceramic Gryphon, Griffon, Oddities
This magnificent beast is a Griffin. His talons sink into the rock with his wings out stretched and beak wide open as if screeching out. Our Griffin statue is made of ceramic and measures approximately 7.5 inches tall, 6 inches wide, 6 inches deep. Would make a wonderful addition to any living space or curiosity cabinet.
With the head, claws and wings of an eagle than the body, tail and legs of a lion this mythological creature has long been feared and appreciated. The Griffin, also spelled Griffon or Gryphon – has been found in painting, sculptures architecture and literature since around 3100 BC. In medieval times this supernatural creature was a symbol of immense power.
