Looking for Griffin Images

Images of griffins throughout history have been used on shields, flags and buildings.  They denote fierceness and loyalty.  Uprightness.  Here are a couple examples I found on free image sites:

Wikipedia has this to say about the griffin:  a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle’s talons as its front feet. Because the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle the king of birds, the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. The griffin was also thought of as king of all creatures. Griffins are known for guarding treasure and priceless possessions.In antiquity it was a symbol of divine power and a guardian of the divine.

I’m looking for free griffin images without watermarks that I can post on this site and my facebook page.  I don’t want to infringe on an artist’s rights and will not take something from the internet just because it’s there.  It has to be stated “Free”.  Please leave comments where I can find some.
