Ivory San Miguel

The winged figure of St Michael stands over the defeated devil, a human headed creature with fangs and breasts, cloven-hoofed hind feet, and clawed forefeet. The saint wears classical armour, and wielding a flaming sword in his raised right hand over the prostrate devil. He has an oval face and heavy-lidded eyes. The wings and right arm are attached separately.
