It is dawn - or dusk. George has fought well. Now he gives thanks to God for his victory. At George's back and above him is the Lion of Judah, Jesus Christ. This dramatic presentation is by Heinrich Lefler from his 1899 calendar. Although primarily known as a set and costume designer for the theater, the calendar is widely considered his masterpiece. Most pictures of St. George show the fight, and we like them, but this is our all-time favorite picture of St. George. It is beautiful and masculine. It would look great on the wall of any den or man-cave.

St. George was a real Saint whose story got entwined with legend. He is the patron Saint of many places, such as England, Portugal, Germany and Greece, as well as Krain, which is an area of Slovenia. Canonized in 494, he is identified with the ideals of honor, bravery and gallantry. He is the patron saint of soldiers.

As for the dragon, we are reminded of Neil Gaiman's (G.K. Chesterton's) remark: "Fairy tales are more than true - not because they tell us dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten."

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

- Acid-free paper
- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Cardboard backer
- Above story of the art
- Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!
