This is Iovan Iorgovan, a Romanian mythological Dragon Slayer. He is usually depicted armed with a battle club or with a battle hammer (axe).
The legends featuring Iovan are mainly centred around the Cerna river in souther Carpathian mountains
In one of the legends, a three-headed dragon dared to disturb Iovan who chased the dragon down the Cerna river valley cutting his heads off one by one until he finally killed him close to Sviniţa in Danube gorge. Dying dragon bled so much that the place is still called Red Valley
