Snapshots: David by Michelangelo 

The statue of David sculpted (located at the Accademia in Florence) by Michelangelo awed me. It is so beautiful. So perfect. So detailed. Some think it is David before he downed Goliath. Others say it is David after he killed Goliath. What do you think?

    An incredible sculpture. How anyone could create that out of a block of marble has always amazed me. So have his big hands. 🙂
