Stained Glass Mosaic by David Chidgey
Swedish Griffin - Private Collection
Stained Glass Mosaic
7" diameter

This commission piece is based on the griffin, symbol of the province of Skåne in Sweden. The griffin is a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle, two animals that were regarded as extremely powerful so the griffin was thought to have magical powers. They were known for guarding treasures.

Private collection. Thanks Åke.
