Heraldic Griffon


Handpainted Needlepoint Canvas by Liz Dillon for Susan Roberts

1 in stock


Design area is 13 3/4″ x 13 3/4″ stitch painted on 13 count. In heraldry, the griffin’s amalgamation of lion and eagle gains in courage and boldness, and it is always drawn to powerful fierce monsters. It is used to denote strength and military courage and leadership. Griffins are portrayed with the rear body of a lion, an eagle’s head with erect ears, a feathered breast, and the forelegs of an eagle, including claws. These features indicate a combination of intelligence and strength. The griffin is the symbol of the Philadelphia Museum of Art; bronze castings of them perch on each corner of the museum‘s roof, protecting its collection.
