– inspired by a *poetic imagery of Man’s will and that which can be Man’s “vision” beyond “Itself”, or “Him/herself”;
in this case the “model” is Portugal’s “Perfect Prince” & People during the XVth Century monarch’s reign (João II)

aka: um Grifo em Azul / le Griffon bleu / a blue Griffen /

(note)
* – said poetic imagery taken mostly from a personal reading & “hue” received from http://www.historia.com.pt/Mensagem/MarPortugues/mostrengo.htm
mixed with the symbolism of the Griffen (of twin features among which are: wisdom & strength, Devine & Human nature; guardian of
“Treasures/Gold/Priceless possessions” & of Devine power)
