St. Jean slaying the dragon, Soganli


St. Jean, another dragon slaying horseback saint, killing the dragon wit a spear. This wall painting is from Yilanli (Snake's) Church in Soganli Valley, Kayseri, Turkey.

This important painting is mostly destroyed due to "prezervation" of historical heritage in the country.
