This is an unusual, more psychological portrait of the saint, with less elaborate armor, a spear rendered in soft light, and a not very threatening dragon. Instead of a bold red cross on a white shield or breastplate, the artist has painted barely noticeable little red crosses on the shaft of the spear.
