And what's more the legend is actually based on the Egyptian story of the God Horus fighting the great snake Anophosis - white versus black, good versus evil, the fundamental belief that underpins all religions. In the Temple of Isis, in Khargi Oasis in the Western Desert, there is a wall relief depicting the struggle. It looks exactly like the medieval pictures of St George and the dragon, but it's 3000 years old!

Ancient Egypt, the source of so many of our treasured beliefs!!

Re: Turkish George

There's a fabulous portrait image of him in burnished gold in the monastery of St Catherine in the Sinai desert, at the place where the miracle of the burning bush is said to have happened.
The weird thing is the likeness to Princess Diana in her young days with very short blonde hair. I still have a postcard of it somewhere from a visit over 30 yrs ago.

Re: Turkish George
