Saint Michael and the dragon

This painting c. 1504 by Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, popularly known as Raphael, (1483-1520) is called the "Little Saint Michael", to distinguish it from the larger painting of Michael, which was done about ten years later. It is approximately 10x12 inches.
Saint Michael, filled with the wisdom of God,
pray for us;
Saint Michael, our sure aid,
pray for us;
Saint Michael, our help in all adversities,
pray for us.
