- “Griobh” Griffin Art is apart of my ongoing Celtic Mythology Series
An ancient creature, the Celtic animal griffin, griffon, or gryphon is a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and sometimes an eagle’s talons as its front feet.
In short, the lion is traditionally the king of the beasts, and the eagle is the king of the birds. Since classical antiquity, griffins guard treasures and priceless possessions.
In Celtic mythology, the griffin stands for undying devotion.
Depictions of griffins you can find on tombs, where they still guard their masters in the afterlife. In conclustion, they symbolize strength, nobility, vigilance, virtue and honor.
Certainly, this majestic beast is an incredibly strong symbol. The griffin is used only when the mightiest gods’ attention needs to be captured, and reserved only when the need is greatest.
O n the other hand, if misused, or invoked for selfish reasons, the griffin brings about gluttony, vengeance, ferocity, and violence. Consequently, a full-grown griffin will never be taken alive, a symbol of a savage fighter.
In addition, the griffin became a Christian symbol of divine power and a guardian of the divine.
