      Michelangelo's David. This may be Michelangelo's most famous sculpture. It certainly is one of the highlights of Renaissance art. It shows David as he is preparing to attack the giant Goliath.

      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:)
