Head of David Fragment from Original Statue by Michelangelo
Head of David Fragment from Original Statue By Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564), 1504, Galleria Dell’Academia, Florence. Dreams do come true. We’d always heard rumors that a master mold of Michelangelo’s David had been taken when the statue was moved and cleaned in the early 1900s. Imagine our joy when, while traveling through a small town west of Florence this past year, we came across a Italian family who owns the master cast and moreover, agreed to give us exclusive rights to it! In our excitement, we’ve taken great care to carefully crate, ship by boat and replicate this unparalleled work as close to the original as possible. When we stand beside it, we can’t believe the truly breathtaking grandeur of this unexpectedly large, 4 ft. high head of David. We are certain that you and your guests will share our appreciation of this idealized focal point—and indeed, the world’s most famous sculpture—as it turns your garden, estate drive, drawing room or luxury bath into a gallery.
