 It depicts Saint George from a late 15th century Ethiopian manuscript called a harag.

I was struck by the cover image of this album when it came out.
Looked to me like one of Chaucer's pilgrims.

I was walking down Portobello Road one sunny Saturday morning in 1986 and heard this coming from a music shop.  Immediately went in and bought it, played it continuously back in my college room (for everyone else too).  Looking forward to seeing this movie. 
 
 Many Thanks
 
P.S. Saw Christiane Ananpour  interviewing  De Klerk yesterday  on CNN - most interesting
