Sylvester and the Dragon

 Sylvester is inspired by the story of St. Sylvester subduing a dragon by binding it's mouth shut. Here is the fable re-imagined with a boy in a natural history museum with a Komodo Dragon. The mouth of the dragon is bound shut with white ribbon. There is a Komodo Dragon skeleton in the display case behind him. The clock indicates it is close to midnight because St. Sylvester's Day is December 31, and on St. Sylvester's Night, between 12 and 1, it was believed that all water would turn to wine.
