What a magnificent beast the griffin is- a fabulous composite creature with characteristics of the king of the beasts (the body of a lion), and the kind of the skies (the head, wings, and talons of an eagle). Legends speak of the griffin as a fierce protector, so you'll want to keep this little guy close by, to guard over your home or work space. The key that he grasps in his claws represents good fortune.

This piece has a flat bottom, and can stand on its own. But it also has a loop on the backside, and can be hung from the wall, if you prefer. The Griffin plaque measures 4 3/4" tall. It is made of plaster, with an antique stone finish. For interior use only

Can I coat this to make it weather-proof?
As tempting as it is to use the Griffin Plaque as a garden ornament, we really don't recommend it for outdoor use. The materials simply aren't able to hold up to constant exposure to wind and weather, even with the most careful application of clear-coat or sealant. Please plan on enjoying this small sculpture inside your home.

Who is the artist?
The Griffin Plaque was created by Jay Hungate. When designing a new sculpture, Jay begins by working with plasticine clay to create the original. When he is happy with his progress, Jay makes a single-use mold and casts the piece in hard plaster. Once that is done, he uses the piaster model to carve additional details, refining and enhancing with every step. Next, he takes the new plaster model, and uses it to make a durable rubber mold, with which to cast finely detailed reproductions of the original. And finally, each piece is hand-finished and painted for the crucial finishing touches.

    A review by for Gryphon Plaque

    I have order both the Winged Lion and Gryphon Relief. They are so beautiful and very nice
    detail on both. Love them so much, it was really hard for me to wrap them up and give them away. They were a Christmas gift. Which my friend loved the too!!
