Bust of Michelangelo's David Statue
by Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564), in the Galleria Dell'Academia, Florence
One of the best replica statues of David we've ever seen! This two-foot high classic sculpture bust replicates one of the world's most recognizable works of art, and embodies an idealistic and naturalistic view of man. The 1504 High Renaissance masterpiece sculpture depicts the young shepherd whose faith in God allowed him to slay the giant Goliath. Upon completion of this classic statue Michelangelo proved to his contemporaries that he not only surpassed all Renaissance artists, but also the Greeks and Romans, by infusing formal beauty with powerful heroic courage and meaning. Cast in quality designer resin, this over two-foot-tall Design Toscano exclusive statue is gallery ready with a faux stone finish set atop an ebony museum mount. A wonderful balance of classic and contemporary accent decor piece!
