Hundreds of works of art have been created over the years to celebrate the legend of Saint George and the Dragon - including a quirky piece of graffiti found in a Norfolk church.
A piece of medieval graffiti from Marsham’s All Saints Church depicting St George battling the Dragon is causing a stir online for being amusingly bad.
An image of the graffiti was shared on Twitter by Matthew Champion of the Norfolk Medieval Graffiti Survey, also known as @MedievalG.
His tweet asked if this was “Medieval England’s worst ever depiction of St George and the dragon”.
He said: “It’s a piece of late medieval graffiti that probably depicts a medieval mummers play of St George and the dragon.
“It’s featured in a couple of publications and in an exhibition in Cambridge, but never ceased to amaze me just how popular it is. One of our poorer pieces of medieval graffiti - but with a certain charm.”
Many people have since responded to the tweet, sharing their love for the child-like graffiti.
Ian Simmons wrote: “I want a tattoo of that!”
While Adrian Powter added: “Much better than some I’ve seen. It gets my vote.”
