Artwork Explained: Griffin

This week we are super excited to be announcing the arrival of our all new Griffin apparel range!

Inspired by the incredible and mighty mythical creature that has been spoken of and depicted in legends and folklore across various cultures and countries over thousands of years.

Griffins are mythological creature with the body, hind legs, and tail of a lion and the wings, front talons, and head of an eagle. Griffins are considered to be symbolic of power, wealth, courage, and prestige.

The very first images of griffins were in ancient Egypt, but the legend of the griffin really came to life during the height of the Silk Road trading period, as travellers from Asia spread the stories of these mighty mythological beasts far and wide.

In Greek mythology they were known to pull Apollo and Nemesis' chariots, as well as being a protective measure for Zeus. The most popular Greek myth about Griffins are from the Arimaspi people who used griffins to guard their hoards of treasure.

 We hope you love this range as much as we do!
