This offering is sold.
This mythological gryphon or griffin has been wonderfully carved out of turquoise by Kevin Chapman. This powerful creature of legend has the head, wings and talons of an Eagle and the body and tail of a lion. It is believed to be a protector and a guardian of treasures! Kevin has done a beautiful job in incising its features and delicately inlaying its eyes with turquoise. It is about 1 1/2" long and 2 1/2" tall.
