Summer of 2008 in Florence, Italy. 'David' by Michelangelo, 1501-04, height 17.0 ft, marble. at L'Accademia, Florence, Italy. This is beautiful because Michelangelo was a great sculptor even more than a painter. Even though his paintings were more famous he still considered himself more of an artist. David was his most famous sculpted work or art.
David, by Michelangelo. Notice how the hand is over proportioned? That's because when you look at it standing on the ground, the hands have normal perception, his hands are way over proportioned actually.
