St. George statue, Victoria, Gozo

Statue of St. George slaying the dragon on Triq San Ġorġ (St. George Street), Victoria, Gozo. The idea of decorating street corners with religious statues dates back to the founding of Valletta in the 16th century. Although many streets in Valletta feature these images, this example stands out from the rest. Unlike it’s small, monochromatic counterparts on the island of Malta, this one on Gozo is in full color, nearly life-sized, and three-dimensional.
