Whether you know them as griffons, griffins, or gryphons, from their origins in Greek mythology, the idea of a creature half eagle and half lion has fascinated people throughout the ages. They’re commonly seen in medieval heraldry as symbols of power, courage, and valor. Even to this day, these hybrid beasts still capture the imagination!
This piece started out as an original that I handmade in oil-based clay. I use silicone rubber to make a mold, capturing every detail from my original sculpt. The mold is poured as a solid piece with urethane resin, and then cleaned up, hand-painted with acrylics, and finished with a sealant spray.
Because every piece is painted and finished by hand, there may be slight variations from the piece seen in the photographs.
