The approximately 5.50 meter high sculpture depicts Saint George on horseback fighting a dragon. George wears a helmet crowned with a cross. In his right hand he holds a sword with which he draws a blow, in his left a cross staff with a banner as a standard. The winged dragon rears up and presses a paw into the horse's chest.
