I feel sorry for some of those rather sweet looking wee dragons but this one is an altogether scarier proposition. The fact that it has crapped itself however makes it a tiny bit more sympathetic.

It's from the Storkyrkan in Stolkholm and attributed to Bernt Notke (1489). The statue, commissioned to commemorate the Battle of Brunkeberg (1471), also serves as a reliquary, containing relics supposedly of Saint George and six other saints; Saint Blasius, Saint Germanus, Saint Leo, Saint Martinus, Saint Donatus and Saint Cyriacus.
