The brave knight and his horse encounter the sinister lindworm. Both stone figures have fled from Basel Minster to the museum to escape the rain: "So, we can continue our fight here". Smoke from the monster's nostrils pollutes the air. Horses' hooves clatter. St. George waves a spear around. I wonder how the story ends.
