Due to the nature of the hero it represents, the statue soon came to symbolize the defense of civil liberties embodied in the Florentine Republic. An independent city-state threatened on all sides by more powerful rival states and by the hegemony of the Medici family. The eyes of David, with a warning glare, were turned towards Rome.
Crafted using the ancient method of lost-wax casting, this relic work of art has been stained with a brown patina finish for preservation. David stands upon a variegated black marble base bearing the artist Michelangelo's signature. Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (6 March 1475 – 18 February 1564) was a master of many trades, including painting, sculpture, architecture, poetry, and engineering. His versatility in the disciplines he took up was of such a high order that he is often considered a contender for the title of the archetypal Renaissance man, along with fellow Italian Leonardo da Vinci.
With its intricate details and rich history, this bronze replica of Michelangelo's David is a true masterpiece of Renaissance art. Add it to your collection today and experience the legacy of one of the greatest artists of all time.
