Scythian Gryphon

Reannag Teine DragonCertainly a vivid and popular design, the source of this motif is older than many first think: a rare wooden find from around 400 BCE. The small carved piece of Scythian horse tack was grave goods found in the Altai Mountains of Siberia. And, like other wooden objects from the same find, it may well bear traces of the bright paints favored by the Scythians, including vivid yellows, reds, and blues. And while books interpret the design as a griffon, others have called it a dragon or an eagle. More color choices are available on request. .
