Fact of the Day
Michelangelo was 26 when he was commissioned to create David. It was the year 1501 and he was paid by the Catedral Works Committee. The statue is now housed in the Accademia Gallery in Florence, Italy, not far from its original footing outdoors in a nearby square.
The piece of marble that the statue is carved from was said to be defective, making the already perfect statue just that much more impressive. Scanning has been done on the statue and it seems the marble is not going to last long. Also, there is ongoing debate on the subject of David's stare. Some say his eyes look different ways so that the profile views are enhanced.
