Michelangelo was born in Caprose, Italy, March 8th, 1475. He spent most of his life in Rome. He was taught to sculpt by Lorenzo the Magnificent. Michelangelo created masterpieces, like David, Crouching Boy, and many more.
Michelangelo created this piece in 1501-1504. This was one of the first sculptures humanism sculpture. It is currently in the Gallenia dell'Accademia museum in Italy. I find it interesting beacause it stands at nearly 17 feat!
