St George icon, chased silver, museum, Mestia, Svaneti, December 2000

One of the many treasures to be found in Mestia's museum, this icon is many centuries old and interesting because it's dragonless. So it could be him posing before going out to kill the monster, just in case he wouldn't return; or a victory shot afterwards.
