Stained Glass Sunday - George and the Chicken Snake Bat Goat

"I, Saint George, in my shiny blue armour and my wings like a parrot and my totally manly yellow knitted miniskirt;
I tread on you, dragon, because you are very silly and you have a chicken's head."
True story.

You were standing beside me when I took this photo. Norwich Cathedral on our last peregrines visit.
And yes, more of Phil and Dawn's Northern Adventure to come.

The miniskirt and the chicken got edited out in later accounts but they're still there in the mediæval stained glass.

Are you sure this isn't St. George feeding Audrey II?

Poor dragon, that's humiliating.

Yay! Well spotted, Ms.M. I think you're right.

Dragons got a bad press in the middle ages, Petrea.
