Gold Vein Male Griffn by Reptangle Gold Vein Male Griffn by Reptangle
This guy is available in a few standard colors in our online store but I paint him lots of different ways for ebay. This one is basic black with delicate gold tracery painted on his rump.

This is a cast gypsum reproduction of my original sculpture produced by Windstone Editions. He is about 9 inches tall, and he has glass eyes.

Here is a link to our ebay listings of the day. This guy was sold already, but you can see what else we got: [link]

Wow. I love the almost dusting of the gold. He looks like something that would come from Egypt, with how regal he looks.

My dad bought it in Germany while he was stationed there, about 10 years ago.

This griffin has been all over the world. We brought him back to the US. I'm telling my dad what you are saying and he thought that it was made and painted in the Germany. He thinks its super cool that I found you on here. He wants to know if you do castles?

We have produced a few castles, by another artist, Gary Kinsella. They have mostly been retired, though I think we still have one of his designs in stock. ..let me find the link here... ah there are still two designs! [link]
I have a castle also, but we never produced it.

You need a detail shot taken of his rump. I know most of us want to see the intricate lines close up.

how long would it take you to make something like this?

Do you mean to paint it? This one probably took a few hours to paint.
Took months to sculpt the original sculpture.

It takes at least a full year to get a rough clay sculpture to a finished painted piece, ready to ship. However there will be test pieces cast during the sculpting process that I will try painting to see how they look.
