    and the Dragon by Raphael is a really interesting painting, it is surprisingly small, (11 1/8 x 8 3/8 in), I was expecting something much larger the first time I saw it in person. My little study is about one aspect of the painting, s spear and how it relates to an idea I read about in Donald Hoffman’s book .
