Donatello's Works

Marble David

The Marble David was created in 1408-1409 and can be found at Museo Nazionale Bargello which is in Florence Italy. I find this piece so interesting because it is one of the first times that humanism has been used in art. This piece exemplifies humanism because it shows that humans are not all perfect.
