Join us for a fascinating discussion of a 19th-century icon representing scenes from the life of Saint George, at the centre of which the Saint slays a dragon. It was endowed by Gerges Debbas and his sons to a church in Yaffa on October 3rd, 1875. The inscription on the icon reads: ‘This consecrated icon was made by the hands of the poor servant teacher, Yanko Teodori Tadros, in Al-Quds Al-Sharif’.
