    Michelangelo's David, a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture created between 1501 and 1504, by the Italian artist Michelangelo. It is a 17 ft. marble statue of a standing male nude. The statue represents the Biblical hero David, a favored subject in the art of Florence. Originally commissioned as one of a series of statues of prophets to be positioned along the roofline of the east end of Florence Cathedral, the statue was instead placed in a public square, outside the Palazzo della Signoria.

    Michelangelo's "David". My mom had to have her own replica after we went. I spent my childhood putting Daddy's tshirts on this statue every time I had a sleepover:) My children saw it and said "We thought David was a boy!" Smart kids:)
