Carlo Crivelli’s 1476 St. Michael, part of a polyptych that comprised the high altarpiece for San Domenico in Ascoli Piceno. We see the fallen angel Lucifer in the form of a semi-human dragon who was once head of the Order of Virtues but who lost favor with God & was expelled from Heaven. In this depiction, which occurred frequently in Medieval art, St. Michael, representing Christ in battle with the Antichrist, wears a coat of armor & holds a spear over the horned, winged & clawed Devil.
