David Bonded Marble Statue: Small is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A magnificent masterpiece! Artist and art historian Giorgio Vasari once said: “Anyone who has seen Michelangelo’s David has no need to see anything else by another sculptor, living or dead.” Whether you're an artist yourself or just someone who appreciates the talent and beauty behind art, you will likely agree that Michelangelo Buonarroti's marble sculpture of David is a masterpiece unlike any other. It's one of the most beautiful, recognizable pieces of art in the world, and if it were possible, who wouldn't want to own a copy of it? I first saw Design Toscano's replica David statue in 2005. It was love at first sight. 11 years later, I was finally able to purchase one and it was more than worth the wait! This bonded marble statue is superb in every sense of the word. It is indeed a museum-quality sculpt, with graceful, smooth, flowing lines worthy of Michelangelo himself. The detail work on this piece is immaculate. I'm an artist myself, and this David was the perfect addition to my studio. It has a nice weight to it – heavy enough to be safe and sturdy, but not so heavy that you can't move it easily. And the 12” is the perfect size for display in any room of your home. With an exceptionally accurate likeness to the full-size Italian original, this statue will not disappoint. I can see no room for improvement here. It's just beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent detail and must be great when larger Excellent detail and a classic subject deserving of a larger replication. Worth considering a truncated form if necessary for affordability

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificant Purchased two of these statues, one for each of my children. They both spent time in Italy and saw the real "David". They both loved the statues. I was very pleased with the quality. Very good value for the money. They actually look very expensive. My secret.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Near Perfect Small Version The addition of the adjunct to the original statue detracts slightly but is as close as you can get in a small scale. The bonded marble is a perfect material.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice accent piece To those admirers of Michangelo's work this is a nice accent piece on a small scale. If you are fortunate enough to have seen the real thing or a full size reproduction the beauty of his work is unquestionable. Some years ago a much beloved department store in my area featured such a reproduction displayed on the stores rooftop as part of an Italian days promotion. It was an awesome sight. This small scale version is a nice accent but some details of the work are lost in the smaller scale. That being said, it is a good purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a beautiful piece of art work. I saw the statue of David in the seventies. I had regrets on not buying a small statue replica at that time. I am very pleased with this one. This is very well made and it is a true likeness as I recall. The quality is superb. This is a beautiful piece of art work. Debra
