Animal symbolism:

Griffin, half eagle and half lion, is; for some, the king of heaven and earth.

Hibou/Owl: the bird of Athena, goddess od wisdom in Greek mythology; because of its nocturnl habits, it is a symbol of sadness and is also associated with alchemists and sorcerers; the 19th century architect Violet-Leduc had one sculpted on the façade of his house.
