The bronze statue of David (circa 1440s) was sculpted by Donatello and is famous as the first unsupported standing work of bronze cast during the Renaissance, and the first freestanding nude male sculpture made since antiquity. It depicts David with an enigmatic smile, posed with his foot on Goliath's severed head just after defeating the giant.
This statue is a first-century A.D. Roman copy of a Greek bronze original dated around 430 B.C. The original bronze probably stood in a sanctuary such as that at Olympia or Delphi, where games were regularly held. Ancient literary accounts and over forty known copies attest to the original bronze being one of the most highly esteemed creations of Polykleitos, who sought to represent the nude male figure with perfect harmony among all parts and according to principles that could be reproduced
