Title: Statue of David: Contemporary Take
Artist Statement: This contemporary take on the statue David is an attempt to bring the classism of the renaissance and marry it with a contemporary style, making it a beautiful piece to hang in a modern home.
David is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture, created in marble between 1501 and 1504 by the Italian artist Michelangelo. David is a 5.17-meter (17 ft 0 in) marble statue of the Biblical figure 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 8 September 1504. The statue was moved to the Galleria dell'Accademia, Florence, in 1873, and later replaced at the original location by a replica.
