Horned Lion – Griffin

The Horned Lion or griffin is a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of an eagle (slab) and the ear of a horse. Lion-shaped statues have many uses in architecture. Shirdal or Griffin is one of the important ideas of ancient Eastern thought and art. It seems that the earliest examples of this idea were made by the Egyptians and then the peoples of Mesopotamia, Ilam and western Iran painted it on their artistic instruments. The eagle and the lion each had magical powers and ruled their own territory. When combined, they became an invincible sanctuary for shrines with different names and characteristics in each of the ancient cultures.
