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.

Real-world information[edit]

David

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.
