The Griffins

did this awesome piece on a father + son as family crest tattoo:

[Griffin is a supernatural, solar hybrid creature, a mediator between the Earth and the Sky. Its most ancient picture was found on the wall of a Mesopotamian temple. It has the body of a lion and the wings and claws of an eagle. As you know, Lion is the King of animals whereas Eagle is the King of birds. That’s why in the ancient world griffin was an emblem of double solar power, the power over the Earth and the Sky, vigilance and bellicosity.]
