Guardians of Gold
The Gryphon Story
Legend has it that gryphons, driven by instinct to seek out treasure, roamed the Caucasus Mountains in search of gold and precious stones. They would dig up these riches with their powerful talons and build their nests of gold.
The gryphons were ever vigilant, protecting their nests and keeping thieves away, thus developing a reputation for being the guardians of gold.
Legends about this mythical creature with the head, talons and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion date back to 3,300 BC, when a gryphon was chosen as companion to the Egyptian Pharaoh. Known for centuries as a symbol of strength and vigilance, today the gryphon embodies the spirit of BMG.
