A griffin – half eagle and half lion, carrying its prey in its claws. The image is taken from a Bestiary*. This manuscript was originally produced in England, probably in Salisbury, Wiltshire in the thirteenth century (1200s).
*To save you looking up “Bestiary” – it is a descriptive or anecdotal treatise on various kinds of animal, popular in the medieval period – and often having a moralising tone.
