Saint vs. Satan. Saint Michael Conquers Satan

This statue fooled me a lot. I did not have an understanding of it until some parishioners explained it to me and pointed out what it was all about. They also showed me some of the details of the statue, like the chain on the Devil. There is another statue of the same inside of the church.

St. Michael with his foot on the Devil's head is classic Catholic iconography that also makes for photogenic statues. The rusty chain is a nice touch.
