Federico Uribe
Griffin

2020

$30,000

About

The Griffin is a mythological creature, which has been depicted in Art from various cultures for thousands of years. Typically, a Griffin is composed of the body and head of a lion with the wings of an eagle, and is commonly portrayed as a powerful and majestic creature. In Federico Uribe's depiction, the winged wild cat has the face of an endangered Lynx. To make the sculpture even more intriguing, the sculpture is constructed entirely out of spent bullet casings (one of Uribe's iconic media). The underlying meaning may be a statement on hunting endangered species, or it could be a statement on the power of manmade weaponry.
