Gryphus in a Knossos fresco in throne palace (half eagle and half lion)
The Griffin is a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle's talons as its front feet. Because the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle the king of birds, the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. The griffin was also thought of as king of all creatures. Griffins are known for guarding treasure and priceless possessions.

A Minoan gold seal featuring some very curvy dancing ladies . A goddess-driven society - Snake Goddess is merely one example - Minoans clearly celebrated women. Most of the artifacts from Minoan society feature women, either alone or in groups. It is believed that women in Minoan society actively participated if not dominated the society's religious practices and events. Men are rarely depicted in Minoan art and other artifacts, and if they are they are rarely shown in positions of power.

Golden signet rings from Minoan Crete (16th-13th cent.BC) . You can see scenes of a sort of a divine romance. The protagonist is a female figure, undoubtedly a goddess, who appears as being seduced by a figure with the help of giant fennel (Ferula sp.) branches . The upmost seal shows a depiction of love prototypical to later Greek art : there is a tiny figure floating in-between the two main ones. In Classic Greek art, this exactly how they depict Eros .
