Firenze MVSEI

In Florence, Italy there is a small museum that houses the biggest most influential sculpture in the world (or at least that’s my opinion).
            Michelangelo’s David is an absolute treat. Because of the perspective and size, Michelangelo made the top perspectively larger than the bottom. David’s hands are about 3 times (I would guess) the size of a normal man’s hand, but his feet are almost normal man-sized feet. The time, energy, and studying this artist devoted to the human figure is mind-blowing.  
            The museum was full of sculptured busts and also some paintings, but the magnificence of David was overwhelming.
