The Golden Griffin

My daughter's seventh birthday was yesterday and all she wanted was for me to sculpt her a griffin. I didn't have much time to complete the job but I couldn't let my little art director down! With a little Q&A I was able to determine exactly what she wanted. She said the griffin should be sitting, with one claw up, head slightly turned and wings extended. I asked her if she wanted it painted realistically, because she had requested the sculpture be realistic, not cartoony. She said she wanted it painted gold. At first I was hesitant, but I think the gold really turned out nice. It almost reminds me of a relic from an Indiana Jones movie. I'm glad to report that she was quite happy with the results. :)
