Pitcher Gryphus.

A sculptural vase with an enormous visual impact, Gryphus recreates the monster of pre-Greek antiquity with a lion’s body and an eagle’s head, in a stylized and dynamic interpretation. Two majestic creatures, of the air and of the earth, in a timeless set, which could equally have originated in a distant past, in contemporary times, or in an indefinite future. The gold used in the creature’s nests is symbolized by matte gold filaments, combined with tracery in relief with simple and elegant geometry. Like the griffin, this piece is associated with the notions of art and intelligence that dominated Classical Antiquity.
