    Hi everyone,

    I’m hoping some one could tell me something about this wood carved figuring I found today. I really don’t know anything, but I think it looks cool. Here are some photos:

    George and the Dragon? Looks a bit like olive wood, but I’m guessing.

    St. George slaying the dragon and does look like olive wood.

    Possibly a souvenir from Portugal.

    Aimed at English tourists, doubtless; he's their patron saint.

    He's also the patron saint of Portugal.
