In recent years, Griffin's artistic style has attracted renewed attention due to the increased exchanges between China and the West. Especially after the 21st century, the recent archaeological discoveries of the diverse Griffin carvings on large palaces and temple buildings in Turkey provide strong support for the ongoing study. Griffin appeared in the myths and epics of the early Tigris and Euphrates: the Akkad, the Assyrian Empire, and the Babylonian Empire, which had great impact on ancient Egyptian civilization and ancient Greek culture to the west. In the process of spreading to the east, it gradually merged with the grassland culture and influenced the East Asian artistic style. This paper, from the perspective of art history, discusses the artistic style of Griffin's images in the early myths and epics of the Tigris and Euphrates, which is helpful to the further understanding of a large number of winged deities in Eurasia.
