Head of Griffin from Olympia Museum Copy Sculpture. This is a replica reduction after a museum original. Made of cast stone with bronze finish and placed on marble pedestal. About: The original in hammered bronze is at Olympia in Greece where it was found. The delicate detail, and the stylization of the design make this fascinating object of antiquity strangely modern. Griffins were frequently depicted in classical art, either in this form or on vase painting.In classical mythology the griffin was a composite creature usually having the body of a lion, the head and wings of an eagle with fantastic interpretations that often combined the qualities of a serpent. They were believed to live in the mountains of Scythia (now southern Russia). It was further believed that they found and guarded gold. In later times the griffin became a symbol of strength and vigilance.
