Upon reading this post, David Stanley Aponte informed me that the mythological creature is actually a Lamassu, and NOT a Griffin. Lamassu (pronounced La-ma-soo) are a hybrid of a human, bird, and either a bull or lion— specifically having a human head, the wings of an eagle, and the body of a bull or a lion. They were a symbol of protection in Mesopotamia.
Incoming mail art from SUBREAL ALCHEMY, David Stanley Aponte, (Philadelphia, PA) arrived on June 4. David sent a handmade postcard - made with a 4" X 6" piece of corrugated cardboard.
The front of David's postcard features, what looks like the mythological creature, the Griffin. In case you've forgotten what a griffin is - it's a mythical beast having the body of a lion and the wings and head of an eagle. Look closer...is the Griffin "flipping the bird?" Haha!
In October 2019 I submitted a postcard to Mick Boyle for his online mail art show, 'Ray Johnson Double Add and Return.'
This is the original download for the 'Ray Johnson Double Add and Return.' I used the top portion of the download to make my postcard.
My postcard is exhibited on Mick Boyle's website HERE.
