Artist's Description

St George is among the most famous of Christian figures. St George’s Day is celebrated on April 23.
Little is known about the real St George. He is thought to have been born into a noble Christian family in the late 3rd century in Cappadocia (in today’s Turkey). He followed his father’s profession of soldier and became part of the retinue of Emperor Diocletian. The emperor ordered the systematic persecution of Christians, and George refused to take part. In 303, he was tortured and executed in Palestine, becoming an early Christian martyr.
