Take 2 – A Quick Sneak Peek At Michelangelo’s- David

November 1st, 2011

I am going to try this post again.
My video didn’t show up, so here it is one more time.

This amazing Renaissance sculpture was created between
1501 and 1504.  It is 17 feet high and is in the 
Accademia Gallery in Florence, Italy.
AND…..I took the video.

The statue represents the Biblical hero, David.  Originally it was commissioned as one of a series of statues to be place along the roofline of the Florence Cathedral.
Instead it was placed outside in Palazzo della Signoria in 1504.  In 1873 it was moved inside the Accademia Gallery and a replica was put in its place outside.
