Michelangelo David Marble Statue, Galleria dell'Accademia, Florence, Italy
Created in marble between 1501 and 1504 by Michelangelo, David is a17.0 ft marble statue of a standing male nude. The statue represents the Biblical hero David, a favored subject in the art of Florence.
David was originally commissioned as one of a series of statues of prophets to be positioned along the roofline of the east end of Florence Cathedral, but was instead placed in a public square, outside the Palazzo Vecchio, the seat of civic government in Florence, in the Piazza della Signoria where it was unveiled on September 8, 1504.
