The statue represents the biblical hero david, a privileged subject in the art of flora. Originally commissioned as one of a series of statues of prophets to position along the roof line of the eastern end of the Florentine Cathedral, the statue was instead placed on a public square, outside the Palazzo della Signoria, the seat of the Florentine civic government, where it was unveiled on September 8, 1504. By the nature of the hero he represented, he soon came to symbolize the defence of civil liberties embodied by the Florentine Republic, an independent city-state threatened on all sides by more powerful rival states and by the hegemony of the medicinal family.
David's eyes, with a warning look, were turned towards Roma. This relic art work has been cast using the old lost and tinted wax molding method with a brown patina finish for preservation. David stands on a black black marble base with the signature of the artist michelangelo. Michelangelo di lodovico buonarroti simoni March 6, 1475? 18 February 1564, commonly known as michel-angel, was an Italian Renaissance painter, sculptor, architect, poet and engineer.
Although he made some incursions beyond the arts, his versatility in the disciplines he followed was of such a high order that he was often considered a candidate for the title of archetypal man of the renaissance, alongside his Italian compatriot Leonardo da vinci. The production of michel-ange in all areas during his long life has been prodigious; when the considerable volume of correspondence, sketches and reminiscences that survive is also taken into account, he is the best documented artist of the 19th century.
