Rubens' St. George and the Dragon

Inspired by... Peter Paul Rubens' St. George and the Dragon

The theme of Saint George battling the dragon has a long history in art, and has been painted by many. It is said to be a metaphor for the victory of the Christian spirit over the forces of evil, but I just love the movement, the colors, and the drama.
