In the church is an identical statue. Obviously, the statue outside is a replica, probably from 1952.
Saint Michael and the dragon
The motif of Michael and the dragon appears in Michael's fight with Samael in the Assumption of Moses, a Jewish apocryphal work.
The characteristic difference with the other dragonslayer saint George is that Michael as an angel is always depicted with wings.
