*ABOUT MICHELANGELO’S DAVID*
David is a masterpiece of Renaissance marble sculpture created between 1501 and 1504 by the Italian artist Michelangelo. The original statue is 5.17 metres (17 ft) and represents the biblical figure David.
It was originally meant to be placed along the roofline of the Florence Cathedral with a series of statues of other prophets, but was instead placed in a public square, outside the Palazzo Vecchio, where it was unveiled on the 8th September 1504. The statue was moved to the Galleria dell'Accademia, Florence, in 1873, and later replaced at the original location by a replica.
*DID YOU KNOW?*
The David sculpture was actually started in 1464 by another Italian artist, Agostino di Duccio. He only got as far as beginning to shape the legs, feet and the torso, roughing out some drapery and probably gouging a hole between the legs. After that, the block of marble remained neglected for over 25 years until a young 26 years old artist named Michelangelo was awarded the contract to finish it. He worked on the sculpture for more than 2 years, and the rest is history.
