Griffin – Keeper of the Skies
The subject of this painting was a mythical flying creature from Greek lore.
A mix between an eagle and a lion, the Griffin is widely considered to symbolize royalty and majestic qualities.
The Greek lore portrays the Griffin as a vigilant keeper of the hunt or as a noble steed. The Griffin here is gazing over the grounds, keeping watch over perhaps some long-lost treasure, forgotten by all but its diligent guardian.
