Winged Beings

Beings with wings are often described in ancient writings, and depicted in ancient artworks and hieroglyphs.

Often, the Being is part-human, with bird wings and head. These symbolize the transition of human consciousness to higher realms of thought.

Winged Beings appear in Mythology, ancient glyphs and texts, in cave paintings, and in Creational Myths. They usually have wings to denote that their origins are somewhere ‘higher’, not from our level of creation.

Sphinxes are generally cat figures (usually leonine) with human faces. The presence of wings differentiates the Asian sphinx from the Egyptian version. A Sphinx does not strictly follow the accepted form, as it can be female or a bearded male, often crowned, with or without wings, and may have body parts from other animals.

The classically accepted depiction however, is Female, and winged.
