St. George statue

Unlike conventional artworks in which St. George is depicted battling a dragon, this statue shows St. George after his fight with the Dragon, which is already slain and lying at the horse’s feet. The dragon is made of pink marble, while the horse and knight are cast in bronze. The sculpture is the work of the Austrian sculptor Anton Fernkorn. It was originally made for the palace in Vienna in 1853. The zinc cast was purchased and brought to Zagreb. The bronze statue was placed at its present day location in 1908.
