    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. 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.

    "And these kinds of guys had never been particularly interested in me. It was like Michelangelo's sculpture of the perfect male specimen David holding hands with a lanky, odd Giacometti figure. Not that I'm putting myself down-I like Giacometti, I really do-but I'm no Venus de Milo." #LIVFOREVER

Michelangelo's "Pietá" (Mary holding Christ's body). Michelangelo's ability to make *one chunk of rock* transform perfectly into (1) wrinkled and draped cloth, (2) a living and breathing person, AND (3) an organic corpse--that will always amaze me.
