Saint George is considered one of the most illustrious martyrs in the Church. In one of his most well-known exploits, he fought a monstrous dragon that was terrorizing a small town and eating local babies. He made the sign of the cross over the dragon and stabbed it with his lance, freeing the people. He is the patron saint of boy scouts, cavalry, farmers, soldiers, England, Germany, Portugal, Spain and Venice. The original handcrafted Jeweled Cross St. George statue is made of fine pewter and is ideal for desk top use.
