Alicorn (Winged Unicorn) – The Greeks and Romans believed the home of the unicorn was India and the unicorn was seen as a mystical and mysterious creature who commanded great respect and power. Its horn was said to have the power to render poisoned water potable, heal sickness and even bring the dead back to life.
Phoenix – This red or golden bird bursts into flames at the end of his life and will be reborn from the ashes. The mythical texts state that the bird can live 1,400 years before rebirth, so the Phoenix symbolizes renewal in general and is associated with the natural cycles of the Sun.
Dragon - In European folk traditions most dragons are depicted as reptilian creatures, with four legs and a set of wings and the intelligence level of an animal. For the dragon the most important features are fire-spewing and its wild nature.
Winged lion - The Winged Lion is a mythological creature with a Lion physique and Eagle wings. He symbolizes power and is also a symbol of battle. His appearance is similar to the Sphinx and the Saint Mark's Winged Lion.
