St. George Slaying the Dragon: The Saint, with the red cloak billowing behind him, transfixes the Dragon to rescue the Princess watched by her parents from the tower with the Christian Lord giving a blessing on the right above.The inclusion of the boy behind St. George commemorates an incident when a captured Christian youth from Mytilene enslaved to a Muslim potentate was serving his master and lamenting his fate, called upon his patron St. George, whereupon the Saint appeared on a white charger, and the boy still clutching his pitcher, climbed behind his hero and was carried off and restored to his parents. Greek icon, 19th Century, (38 x 27½ cm).
