Photographic Print. The magnificent shining gold Griffon statue at the entrance of the village, Portmeirion.
Lying high on a wall against the sky as you enter the village, this is one of a collection of sculptures, statues, architectural features and buildings which Sir Clough Williams-Ellis collected from around the world. Griffon is from the Greek word Gryphon. Sir Clough Williams-Ellis wanted people to take delight in his illusions and as you walk around the paths, steps and terraces, it is rich in the unexpected. He was a master of curious juxtaposition.
"Information, Information." "You won't get it." "By hook or by crook we will." "I am not a number. I am a free man." Menacing laughter.
In Paintings in Gouache this is a fragment in Portmeirion 3. Griffon, Shell and Gloriette windows.
