Details

This may be Michelangelo's most famous sculpture. It certainly is one of the highlights of Renaissance art. It shows David as he is preparing to attack the giant Goliath. The work was commissioned by the Florentine nobleman Piero Soderini. The torso is proportionally oversized. This was probably done because the work was to be put on a high pedestal. When one looks up to the David from way down, perspective creates the correct proportions. David spent more than 300 years in the open air, on the Piazza Signoria in Florence. The sculpture was moved to the Accademia in 1873. A copy was placed on the Piazza in 1910.

Specification

Made of bronze (lost wax). "Lost Wax" bronze (or hot-cast bronze) is actually 100% pure Bronze - essentially copper and tin. The most known and used process for making "lost wax" involves pouring of molten bronze. This is the same method used by the ancient civilizations to create bronze sculptures. The making of a "lost wax" bronze is a complex and time consuming process, and specific technical expertise is needed to accomplish the task of making a bronze.
