The Dreaded French Tarasque Dragon

Legend has it that this boxy (volvo shaped) six legged sort of dragon ravaged the landscape and peeps in Nerluc, Provence, France. This naughty monster had a lion's head, spiked tortoise shell and a tail that ended with a scorpion's sting. That siren St. Martha saved the day by luring this prickly pest into the nearby village with songs and prayers. The scared peasants exterminated the beast and then converted to Christianity. That was their way of saying thanks to Saint Martha for her help. There is a festival every June where the procession of the dreaded Tarasque dragon is celebrated! French vintage postcard
