Griffin / Gryphon


A powerful symbol found in the mythologies of many ancient cultures, the Griffin (also written Gryphon or Griffon) had the head, wings and talons of an eagle and the body and tail of a lion. The Griffin was a guardian of both the earthly and the spiritual world, and symbolised the seasons, as well as (like the dragon) the relationship between the sun, sky and earth, between cosmic forces and psychic energy.
