The tradition tells that a fierce dragon was causing panic at the city of Silene, Libya, at the time George arrived there. In order to prevent the dragon from devastating people from the city, they gave two sheep each day to the dragon, but when the sheep were not enough they were forced to sacrifice humans instead of the two sheep. The human to be sacrificed was elected by the city's own people and one time the king's daughter was chosen to be sacrificed but no one was willing to take her place. George saved the girl by slaying the dragon with a lance. The king was so grateful that he offered him treasures as a reward for saving his daughter's life, but George refused it and instead he gave these to the poor.

*Cold Cast Bronze Resin: A cold cast bronze statue is created during the process of combining real powdered bronze metal with resin. The statue is then cast into a replica mould, and the resulting piece is breathed into life. This meticulous process allows for cold cast bronze statues to flaunt a higher-quality detail than it’s solid bronze counterpart, as well as an exceptional price difference!
