Dovecote Church

Saint Mikalos (Michael)

Saint Michael is holding his scabbard in his left hand. He wears a garment over his torso armour, and his kremasmata appear to be of strips of some sort. He wears boots and his legs appear to be bare.

Detail of the torso - the garment appears to be of fairly flexible fabric. The circular feature at the waist is in evidence on this figure.
