Fea­tur­ing the body of a lion and the head and wings of an ea­gle, the leg­endary gryphon (or grif­fin) is a pow­er­ful myth­i­cal crea­ture. Pur­ported to be in­cred­i­bly strong and pow­er­ful, the crea­ture is thought of as a pro­tec­tor of all things price­less. This ren­di­tion of the myth­i­cal crea­ture fea­tures the use of Au Ver A Soie silks on 32-count linen.
