You don't have to go to Florence, Italy to see it. Full scale and an outstanding reproduction from Italy. Located outside of the Ripley's museum in St. Augustine.

Seriously? The Carrera marble used by Michelangelo has this milky luminosity to it. This looks like cast and polished concrete.

How would you look standing outside for years in nothing but your birthday suit?

There is a full size casting of Leonardo's Bronze Horse in Meir Gardens, Michigan. Standing under it and looking up at the horse's head, the design is a beautiful Fibonacci spiral. Scale has to be appreciated in three dimensions. For example, David's head would be grossly enlarged in proportion to his body if you saw him straight on, but you were meant to look up at it as it would be on a pedestal.

If it were outside, I could understand how this might be so, but the David is INDOORS at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. Visit early in the day to avoid large crowds.

It was outside for many many years before they brought it in. That explains the shrinkage.

It probably is a casting. The talent it took to produce the original is rather rare.

I have seen and photographed the original. I agree with rgrenaderphoto.

In his autobiography, David expressed his dislike of that. How did I father so many kids if hung like that was his point.

The David was originally placed above a piazza in Florence, then moved inside a few years later. When you look at the David in person in Florence, it is spectacular. I don’t believe marble formed by Michelangelo can be adequately reproduced with plaster or fiberglass. Even in person the perspective is odd with David though. The toes, the hands etc. are too long. However, from the perspective of looking up from the Piazza to the exact spot it was created for, the statue reportedly takes on an appearance that shows a perfectly formed lithe, powerful adolescent looking towards the horizon. Michelangelo was amazing in his ability to create perfection from marble by manipulating perspective.
