Above is my version of a griffin. I have come to embrace the symbolism of being a guardian, protector and keeper of the treasure and learning what that means for me. What’s your inner guardian?


The griffin has it’s origins in the ancient east. It was said to guard the gold of India. In Christian iconography it symbolizes the dual nature of Jesus – the divine represented by the bird, and the human by the animal.
