slay dragons

Today a chance to share a favourite painting by Uccello from the days when I wandered round the National and Tate. A childhood tale too.  I never understood why the knight had killed the damsels pet. After all she is clearly holding her dragon’s leash in her hand. No wiki in those days to put me right.

Even then still soft spot for this dragon who seems quite sad rather than a threat. Moral for today is not to jump to conclusions sometimes things are not as they seem.

Have a good day
