A work of which the 16th-century art historian Vasari wrote: "Whoever has seen this work need not trouble to see any other work executed in sculpture, either in our own or in other times, by no matter what craftsman." Phew! Michelangelo's statue of David was finished in 1504, the result of three years' work. It is to be found in Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence.
Honeymoon in Sarasota - Ringling Museum of Art Sarasota, Florida - I have a honeymoon photo in front of this statute.... still trying to get used to being "married" and on my own... did not come easy to me
Michelangelo David in Florence #dailyshoot #Michelangelo #leshaines One of the most famous statues in the world, this one overlooking the town of Florence in Italy. Decided to keep this as a silhouette to try and be a bit more original, and kept slightly off balance with cropping. Michelangelo statue of David.
