If you have not seen this, very little in life will have prepared you for it. It is breathtakingly stunning, and my mouth dropped when I first laid eyes on it. It is the most beautiful work of art I have ever seen.

Canon Powershot s90 Please click image to view large This was a “grab shot” literally, before bieng seized by security as pictures are forbidden. My view is I’m not intending to profit personally from Michelangelo & St Peter’s is a more worthy cause than a few postcards sold by the Accadamia. Any requests to take down the image will be given due consideration before I tell them to get lost.

Many thanks to everyone who views my work. Comment if you wish, but I’m afraid I am unable to respond or reciprocate at this moment in time. I will always try to repay a favourite though.

From Wiki:

David is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture created between 1501 and 1504, by the Italian artist Michelangelo. It is a 5.17-metre (17.0 ft)1 marble statue of a standing male nude. The statue represents the Biblical hero David, a favoured subject in the art of Florence.2 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 placed instead in a public square, outside the Palazzo della Signoria, the seat of civic government in Florence, where it was unveiled on 8 September 1504.

Because of the nature of the hero that it represented, it soon came to symbolize the defense of civil liberties embodied in the Florentine Republic, an independent city-state threatened on all sides by more powerful rival states and by the hegemony of the Medici family. The eyes of David, with a warning glare, were turned towards Rome.3 The statue was moved to the Accademia Gallery in Florence in 1873, and later replaced at the original location by a replica.

Ah well, 50+ & getting more muddled by the day.

Hope you enjoy my work, and feel free to buy anything you like enough. :-)
