Michelanelo's David Art Statues

The famous Michelangelo David Statue is available in over eight different art-sculptural forms. The full body statue, the upper torso, the bust with wide neck, the bust with short neck, the right hand and the left foot. In the Valley of Elah was where the young David started as a shepherd boy that became king of Israel, which then slew the giant Goliath with his sling-shot three millennia ago in a battle between the Israelites and Philistines.

The slingshot is held over his shoulder while the other over-sized hand holds the rock. Destined originally for one of the buttresses of the Duomo, it was placed instead in the plaza outside the Palazzo Vecchio, the seat of Florence's government. Unlike Donatello, who depicted his heroic David art with Goliath's head at his feet, Michelangelo's statue selected the tense moment before the battle. The art subject of the statue has to do with David and Goliath, and later David was king of Israel for many years. Nowadays, you can find David in the Galeria dell'Academia in Firenze. The actual statue of David was started by a different artist, Agostino di Duccio, in 1463. This monumentally scaled statue of the Biblical David was commissioned as a symbol of the Florence republic. Michelangelo's David statues stand as a legacy to art that valued for centuries by society.
