When Her Majesty The Queen was crowned in 1953, ten statues stood guard at her coronation in Westminster Abbey, fierce royal protectors called The Queen’s Beasts. They represented centuries of history and heritage that were passed on to Her Majesty that day.
In heraldry the griffin is a sentinel, often standing upon roofs and doorways, as the guardian of sacred objects and a talisman against evil. The griffin is part lion, part eagle, forming a creature that is more powerful than either alone. The griffin was first used as a royal beast by Edward III, it's coronation shield depicts Windsor Castle, which is where Edward founded the Order of the Garter in 1348.
