Get to Know Melissa Kruse
Gryphon: a mythical animal typically having the head, forepart, and wings of an eagle and the body, hind legs, and tail of a lion. The stories of the Gryphon began as far back as 3000 BC when they are said to have been the Pharoah’s companions in Ancient Egypt and later became guardians in Minoa. The Romans used Gryphon’s for decoration and they are commonly carved as Gargoyles on medieval buildings.In mythology, the Gryphon would find gold in the mountains and make their nests of it, sometimes at the entrance to caves filled with valuables. The Gryphon also had an instinct to know how to locate buried treasure and once found, they would apply themselves to guarding it the best they could, keeping plunderers at a distance. This made these creatures very tempting for hunters and thieves, so Gryphon’s were forced to keep vigilant guard.Today, Gryphon’s can be found in boardrooms or bank buildings and are likely to be meeting with attorneys or corporate officers. The setting is a little different, but the goal is the same; keep diligent guard and protect the value of the assets within their control. Melissa M.
