St. George and the Dragon

St. George and the Dragon

My interpretation of St. George's confrontation with a dragon.

Although St. George went on to become the patron saint of England, in the original myth he was a Roman soldier instead of the commonly depicted medieval knight. Furthermore, the tale was set in "Libya", which is what the Greeks and Romans called Africa west of the Nile Valley, so I've made the damsel-in-distress and the landscape African rather than European. One thing my rendition does have in common with traditional images is that my dragon isn't really that big; in some old artwork, the dragon is no bigger than St. George's horse!
