How Michelangelo got Started
One of Michelangelo's very first sculpture's was called David. Sculpted in 1504, and became the symbol of Florence glorious political heritage. The sculpture David used to be placed in front of the city hall in Florence but it is now displayed in the city's academia. This piece of art was all about redefying and redeveloping the Gorbals generation. What I find so interesting about this art piece is the amount of small detail put into it. The wrinkles in the facial expression are sculpted absolutely perfect. This beautiful well crafted piece of art represents humanism. It shows a life-size human, the strengths and the weaknesses, the small details that show in reality. Imagery and what reality was in this time period.
