Detail of "David" is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture created between 1501 and 1504, by the Italian artist Michelangelo. It is a 5.17-metre (17.0 ft)[1] marble statue of a standing male nude. The statue represents the Biblical hero David. The warning glare no doubt was for the giant Goliath slew by David. The statue of David is the best known and the most reproduced work in the history of art.

Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling. The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel is quite large and it's unimaginable what Michelangelo did, however, this is my favorite part of the ceiling.
