This piece represents the character of San Jorge (St. George) represented with a green hat with red and white cross as decoration. He will defeat the virgin eating dragon and help the Christian Kings in their fight against the Moors in Spain. Notice the well carved hair details; painted eyes are highlighted by tiny eyelashes and eyebrows. The recently shaved beard is symbolized by the green painted area that gives San Jorge a western look. Patina on the back denotes use. Please notice that the price includes FREE USPS Shipping.
