St, George and the Dragon

created by Berndt Notke of Lübeck in 1489

The Legend tells of a terrible dragon that demanded human offerings
from the town of Selene as its price for not laying waste to the town.

The day the King's daughter is to be sacrificed, St. George comes riding by,
On condition that the town's heathen inhabitants convert to Christianity, he slays the dragon.
