I could bore you with all of the reasons why I was excited to see The David or list all of the facts that almost everyone knows; however, seeing this 16 foot masterpiece in person was amazing. The details are astonishing. Michelangelo was 26 when he began the David. He also made the statue simplistic. It tells the story of David, but without theatrics. It’s clean and uncluttered. Below are some photos.
