Photographers, artists, poets: show us ART.
The piece of art that I am drawn to is the sculpture David by Michelangelo. I saw this magnificent work when I was in Florence in 2001. I have never forgotten it. Just remembering that experience gives me chills.
Michelangelo sculpted David out of marble. It is a massive statue. It captures the moment just before David throws his stones at Goliath. It captures the fleeting moment of indecision that David has. The expression on David’s face is beatific. The eyes are mesmerizing. The muscles are perfect. It is without a doubt one of Michelangelo’s finest sculptures. This sculpture speaks to me.
David is found in the Uffizi Museum in Florence. It stands alone on a pedestal in a room in the Uffizi. You can walk around the statue and view it from every angle. The eyes seem to follow you. It is an unbelievable experience to see this sculpture. It is an experience not to be missed.
