HUGE ANTIQUE ENAMEL ST GEORGE THE DRAGON SLAYER STERLING PENDANT

German

This is an extremely large well carved image with lots of detail for its size

St George the Dragon Slayer

atop his beautiful white enameled horse

wearing his cobalt blue and blackenameled armour

with his spear impaling in the green enameled dragon's mouth.

In English folklore, St. George slew the mighty dragon. According to legend, a pagan town in Libya was being terrorized by a dragon. The locals kept throwing sheep to it to placate it, and when it still remained unsatisfied, they started sacrificing some of the citizenry. Finally, the local princess, Cleolinda, daughter of the King, was to be thrown also to the beast, but good St. George came along, slaughtered the dragon and rescued the fair princess. At this, the townsfolk converted to Christianity. Some experts think the tale is based on the Greek myth of Perseus rescuing Andromeda from a sea monster.
