Hicham Aboutaam: Greek Gold Griffin Protome

Hicham Aboutaam Griffin
The Gold Griffin

The griffin is a legendary creature with the head and wings of an eagle, and the body, tail, and back legs of a lion. A combination of the king of the jungle and the king of the birds, it was a powerful creature. This tiny golden piece is a stunning depiction of the griffin’s head. Only 1.5 inches in height, it still takes away one’s breath.
