Michelangelo's David

David is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture created between 1501 and 1504, by the Italian artist Michelangelo. It is a 5.17 metre (17 foot) marble statue of a standing male nude. The statue represents the Biblical hero David and was instead placed in Piazza della Signoria.
The statue was moved to the Accademia Gallery in Florence in 1873, and later replaced at the original location by a replica.
