Florence

What do I like about Florence? It's a city which is full of statues. We got to see all these statues in one place at Piazza Santa Croce, Piazzale Michelangelo, Duomo and Piazza della Signoria.

Dante Statue

Piazza Santa Croce



David is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture created between 1501 and 1504, by the Italian artist Michelangelo. It is a 5.17-metre (17.0 ft)marble statue of a standing male nude. The statue represents the Biblical hero David, a favoured subject in the art of Florence.


Of all the statues posted here, which one do you like best?

    3. The links work fine for me but Wenn, I think you've linked it to the wrong David.

      You didn't see the original? It's located in the galleria something in Florence as well. Time-constraint, I guess.
