The bronze replica of david is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture created between 1501 and 1504 by the Italian artist michel-ange. The statue depicts the biblical hero david, a privileged subject of Florentine art.
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, seat of the Florentine civic government, where it was inaugurated on September 8, 1504. By the nature of the hero she represented, she 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 according to the old lost wax molding method and tinted with a brown patina finish for preservation. David stands on a black marble base with the artist.
