Partial capture of ‘George the dragon slayers’ Statue outside Melbourne State Library, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. I really liked the the way the horse exudes so much character in the statue apppearing as the true fighter in this battle.

Featured in the Statues and Such Group.

    This statue has haunted me ever since I was a child.
    As far back as I can remember, I have loved Dragons.
    And this person killed them.
    Whenever my grandparents took me to the Museum, I cringed
    at the site of this statue.
    May the way of the Dragon Last Forever……
    So There……….

  • So sorry Larry..i am an equine fan and i do love the dragons so i understand your plight..not to offend you at all :))
