The griffin (also spelt gryphon, griffon or gryphin) is a legendary creature with the body of a lion and either a head of an eagle or a lion. The female has the wings of an eagle. The male (known as a keythong) has projecting spikes instead of wings and is less frequently depicted. In the artwork of ancient Persia, as well as in the artwork of other parts of the ancient world from Scythia to Macedonia and Greece, the Griffin has special place. In Babylon the griffin has lions head and body but wings of an eagle. Babylon was conquered by the Persians and then by Alexander the Great and the Macedonians. Its famous walls depict the lion griffins. Item No. 410 Weight 15 Lb. Dimensions W: 20.5" H: 12.5" D: 2.25" Made of cast stone with antique finish, comes with a hole or a hook in the back for easy wall hanging.


Made of cast stone. Cast stone is a type of gypsum cement whose properties are much different from plaster of paris which is what most sculpture shops use. Unlike plaster, which is soft, light and weak, cast stone is hard, heavy and strong. Cast stone feels like, and is heavy like a real stone would be, which can be experienced as soon you try to lift it.
