Today we would like to share some information about one of world top ten sculptures-THE DAVID.
The David was commissioned to Michelangelo at the age of 26, after he had convinced the Operai, the overseers of the office of work in Florence Cathedral, that he deserved the work. Unlike the work of Donatello and Verrocchio, who depicted the hero standing over the head of Goliath, Michelangelo presented David before the great battle. The intense expression, coupled with the subtle strain in his posture was intended to represent his making the decision to fight, and what the choice meant to him. In addition to the story it tells, the sculpture is also supposed to be a visual of youthful beauty.
