About David
At only 26 years of age, Italian artist Michelangelo created David, a gleaming white marble masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture. Working in complete secrecy, he completed his 17-foot (5.17 metre) work of genius in two years.

Michelangelo’s David was originally intended to be positioned atop Florence Cathedral, but, when unveiled in 1504, it was considered far too perfect to be placed that high up. The statue was instead placed in the political heart of Florence, in Piazza della Signoria.

Michelangelo strayed from the traditional portrayal by Florentine artists of David after his triumph over Goliath and instead chose to depict him before the battle: tense, relaxed but alert. His barely visible slingshot emphasizes that his victory was due to cleverness and not sheer force.

While ultimately a religious sculpture, David became the symbol of civic liberty embodied by the Republic of Florence, an independent city-state surrounded by powerful rival states and dominated by the Medici family.

David Meets David in Greek Parthenon Setting

Blue David joins another David in a small Greek Parthenon setting I’ve created. I’ve almost liked the blue statue since I first saw it in Provincetown, MA a year ago. I purchased him for my partner, but had always wished I’d gotten it for myself! Now I have it. The quality seems quite good, and I like the fading of the blue from lighter to darker. My only qualm might be the transition to purple at the feet - I think I would have preferred shades of blue only from top to bottom. I am hoping to acquire the green Thinker to add to my collection.

Work of Art

This David statue is a true work of art and so well-made. I'm truly blown away by its quality. It's heavy and so beyond detailed. I've had so many people ask me where it's from! I can't wait to purchase one of the other ones. Thank you so much!
