Martin Wall – George The Dragon
Introducing George The Dragon sponsored by Archant (Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News), designed and painted by Martin Wall.
England’s brave and gallant patron saint is the inspiration behind the winning entry in our design-a-dragon competition.
Drawing on the legend of St George and the Dragon, 75-year-old John Checketts’ clever design sees the two characters become one, with the armour of St George worn by the fire-breathing beast. Mr Checketts’ idea beat more than 250 other great entries to be picked as the design for the EDP and Norwich Evening News-sponsored sculpture which will be part of the GoGoDragons! charity art trail through Norwich next year. There will be 80 dragons in the trail – which is being organised by children’s charity Break and Wild in Art – and George will watch over the city from our head office, Prospect House.
