Oil on canvas. The young martyr Margaret of Antioch is representd in ecstasy whit her iconographic symbols: she's holding martyrdom's palm and the Cross, the dragon at her feet. According to tradition, the ypung girl had been imprisoned during Diocletian's persecution because she was christian and she was visited by the devil in the guise of a dragon that swallowed her: Margaret ripped up its womb with the Cross and she came out victorious; because of that she's invoked as the patroness of pregnant women to have an easy childbirth. Restored and displayed in frame.
