Pair of Patinated Griffin Statues from France

These French griffin statues were found in the south of France, and they constructed of terra cotta color tinted cement with a parcel white finish. They are relatively recent, from the late 20th century.  The overall demeanor of these griffins puts a smile on your face.   Now that’s not to say they aren’t also very regal with their talons wrapped around a c-scroll on a Royal cartouche.  Both griffins also have different stances:  one with the right leg on the cartouche and the other with the left leg on the cartouche;  one with his tail draped under and around his right leg while the other is just the opposite; and, lastly, their heads gaze over opposing sides. These mystical creatures had the body, rear legs, and paws of a lion, while the head ,wings and front legs are that of an eagle. Griffins have been depicted as guardians and symbolize strength and wisdom. There is much more symbolism regarding Griffins depending upon the culture and there are 24 different ways to spell the name.

This pair of French Griffins on base will be wonderful flanking the entry of an important home or anywhere you wish to place them.
