Michelangelo's masterpiece David, is one of my favorite statues to behold, due to the faithful nature which inspired the artist.

Michelangelo's David

Michelangelo's Inspiring Masterpiece

Even though the statue of David is a beautiful work of art, I wish someone would design some pants for him to wear. A manly gladiator skirt that the warriors wore back in the day, would be nice. Perhaps someone could design a fig leaf, or something. I don't know why he's naked this seems a bit vulnerable. But, by chance maybe someone may have an appropriate reason as to why he is not wearing any clothes?

The statue of David was created between 1501 and 1504, by the Italian artist Michelangelo. It is a 5.17-metre (17.0 ft) marble statue of a nude figure.This statue is said to represent a fierce warrior of faith, King David.

David’s willingness to conquer his enemies at a young age through faith, made him a man after God’s own heart.

Because David Represents the underdog that walked by faith and not by sight, the nature of David’s way inspired the community.

The statue soon came to represent the defense of civil liberties personified in the Florentine Republic, an independent realm endangered on all sides by giant adversaries and by the dominion of the Medici family. The eyes of David, giving off fearless stare, faced towards Rome. The statue was eventually moved to the Accademia Gallery in Florence in 1873, and later reinstated at the novel location by a duplication.

One of David’s most memorable victories is his triumph over a Giant Philistine who terrified the men around him. This disquieting rival went by the name Goliath.
