The first 4 pictures were taken outside in bright sunlight, thus the variation in color shown in the photos. My camera likes to give a bluish cast in sunlight. The other photos were taken inside during a thunderstorm so they are a bit dark. This item is a dark bronze color.
The griffin, griffon, or gryphon is a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle's talons as its front feet. As the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle was the king of the birds, the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. The griffin was also thought of as king of the creatures. Griffins are known for guarding treasure and priceless possessions.
