Dalí again transforms a traditional image by adding new and unexpected symbolic connotations.  The classic interpretation of “St George and the Dragon” is commonly seen as the saint’s battle against heresy and evil, St George being the guardian angel of Aragon and a celebrated saint of chivalry throughout medieval Europe.  In this sculpture, we can see the artist himself, represented by St. George, slaying the dragon, while his inspirational muse, Surrealist Art, exalts in the background.  Metamorphic touches find their way into this sculpture too: the dragon’s wings turn into flames, and the monster’s tongue is a crutch, a favourite Dalínian image. We see a woman with her arm raised in the sign of victory.
