Description Young David glares at his enemies, sling slung over his shoulder. It took Michelangelo more than three years to sculpt this piece. Close inspection shows heart- shaped eyes, but that's probably meant to depict light hitting them. Hearts didn't have the lovey-dovey symbolism back then that they do today.

In New Leaf, if there is cloth hanging down his right shoulder, it is fake. If his right shoulder is bare, it is genuine.

In New Horizons, the forged statue holds a tome between his arm and waist, while the genuine statue does not.


Real-world information[edit]


Sculpted by the acclaimed Italian artist Michaelangelo between 1501 and 1504 — during the Renaissance — David is a seventeen foot tall marble statue of David, a Biblical hero and a favored subject of art in Florence. David is depicted standing nude, posed in the contrapposto posture.

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, the seat of civic government in Florence, where it was unveiled on 8 September 1504.
