Detail from a walnut statue of St. Michael (French, c. 1300-50), Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 21 July 2013. From the wall text:

The Archangel Michael is shown overcoming Satan in the form of a dragon. During the 14th century the cult of St Michael became widespread, but it was particularly cherished in France by the Valois dynasty. A sculpture like this might have stood in a church aisle or in a chapel dedicated to St Michael.
