12' Tall Griffin Guards Tucson's Scott Avenue ~

Created by Tucson artist Joe O'Connell, this sparkly orange 1/2 lion, 1/2 eagle sculpture was inspired by the griffins that once adorned the Carnegie Library (now the Tucson Children's Museum). Lion paw/eagle talon prints are imbedded in the pavement from the museum to the sculpture's pedestal.

Lights in the ribcage illuminate those fabulous wings at night. Located on Scott just south of Broadway.
