Scythian Myth-Busters

The griffin is a mythological creature with the body of a lion, head and wings of an eagle, and the heart and mind of a certified pubic accountant.  Its job was to guard the riches of the Scythians, no scythies themselves.

This sturdy version is in front of the Acacia Building in Washington DC, and with its twin stares in the direction of the US Capitol Building, keeping the lawyers within from being sacked by Congress (shouldn't it be the other way around?).
