Artist's Description

A detail from the Romanesque church Peter-and-Paul (Saint-Pierre-et-Paul) in Rosheim (Alsace, France).

This sculpture (which goes on around the corner) depicts a knight saving his compatriot from a dragon. In full view you can see the sword stabbing into the dragon’s maw.

The church has been constructed in the 12th century (start of construction 1150) with the addition of a tower in the 14th century. The church’s organ was built in 1733 by Andreas Silbermann, an important organ builder of the Baroque period in the region.
