A few words in advance: My family and i are from Germany and collect sacred art in the third generation. It’s probably meant exactly for that and i can’t think of a better purpose than this. This is a very unique presentation of Saint George. In most cases you find him riding on a horse with lance. In this particular one he has equipped a sword and shield while he is wearing a heavy armor/chainmail. I have never seen this kind a presentation of Saint Georg and this must be a genuine unique piece by a single sculptor. The sword goes thru the mouth of the dragon.
