FOR THE LOVE OF BEAST & BIRD Because King Edward III used both the Falcon and Lion as his supporters, it comes as little surprise to learn he also used the Griffin (aka Gryphon) as a royal badge to appear on his private seal. Of course, the Griffin is not part falcon, but instead part eagle and part lion.
It is said The Griffin is the most widely used "monster" in heraldry, while the lion is the most widely used beast and the eagle the most widely used bird.
This mythical creature is known to be strong, intelligent and courageous. It is used to show strength, leadership and military courage. Following his military success and restoring royal leadership after the disastrous reign of his father, the Griffin seems fitting for Edward III.
Just like Edwards’ Griffin, your solid silver replica is sculpted in the female form featuring wings (instead of spikes), taloned arms, and a lions body.
