    Griffin Pedestal

    In addition to the imitation of natural animals there have been from the earliest time various monsters which were composed of parts of several different animals Centaurs, Sphinxes, the Assyrian Human Lions, Lions and Eagle man , combine the human and animal body. The combination of the different animal-forms with one another, leads to Monsters, the chief representatives of which are the Griffin, and the Chimaera. The Griffin is the union of a Lionís body with the head and wings of a Eagle. The fore extremities may belong either to the Lion or the Eagle. As the Lion with water, so the Griffin is associated in Antiquity with fire; hence his frequent appearance with Candelabra on friezes, &c. In Heraldry the Griffin is the symbol of wisdom and watchfulness.
