The Griffon is a powerful ancient mythological creature - part eagle and part lion.
This Celtic symbol of duality is known for its positive attributes: nobility, justice, gentleness, trustworthiness, vigilance, and strength. If misused however, these virtuous traits can be transformed into negative qualities: selfishness, vengeance, and violence.
Care must therefore be taken when invoking such a mighty spirit whose fiery forces are only revealed in moments of greatest need.
The Griffon occupies a place of honor in many cultures, often portrayed as a stone-faced beast whose commanding presence reflects his remarkable role as guardian and protector of all life, a sacred task to which he remains loyal even in the afterlife.
