The Griffin - A Fantastic Animal Paper Model - by Katsuyuki Shiga



This is the Griffin, a paper model created by Japanese designer Katsuyuki Shiga for Canon website. 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. Because the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle the king of birds, the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. The griffin was also thought of as king of all creatures. Griffins are known for guarding treasure and priceless possessions.


Este é o Grifo, um modelo de papel criado pelo designer japonês Katsuyuki Shiga para o site da Canon. O grifo é uma criatura lendária com o corpo, a cauda e as pernas traseiras de um leão; a cabeça e as asas de uma águia; e as garras de uma águia. Por ser o leão tradicionalmente considerado o rei dos animais e a águia, o rei dos pássaros, o grifo era considerado uma criatura especialmente poderosa e majestosa. O grifo também era imaginado como rei de todas as criaturas. Os grifos são conhecidos por guardar tesouros e bens inestimáveis.
