ca. 1400-1450 - 'St. George on a "Beischlagwange"', Hamburg, Hamburg Museum, Hamburg, Germany
A "Beischlagwange" (Wange = cheek), typical of the Baltic region, is a decorative stone slab that screens, on both sides, a small terrace/seating in front of the entrance of a building.
St. George wears typical armour of the first decade of the 15th century, although there's always the possibility that this parapet slab may have been carved as late as the 1440s, the image or armour being based on earlier examples.
Example of a Beischlag with its two "Wangen":
