Description

Gabriel Halo artistic innovation took place in the fact that for the first time he captured the hero in an image consisting of a large number of three-dimensional threads. The painting depicts a young man with regular facial features, ready to fight a dangerous enemy. His proud head with a shock of hair, furrowed eyebrows in waves of furious feelings speak of an indomitable will.

David is a famous Renaissance era sculpture, created from 1501 to 1504 by the Italian artist Michelangelo. With a height of 5.17-metre (17 ft 0 in), the David was the first colossal marble statue after antiquity, a precedent for the 16th century and beyond. David was originally commissioned as one of a series of statues of prophets to be positioned along the roofline of the east end of Florence Cathedral, but was instead placed in the public square in front of the Palazzo della Signoria, the seat of civic government in Florence, where it was unveiled on 8 September 1504. In 1873, the statue was moved to the Galleria dell’Accademia, Florence, and in 1910 replaced at the original location by a replica.

The biblical figure David was a favoured subject in the art of Florence.[1] Because of the nature of the figure it represented, the statue soon came to symbolize the defence of civil liberties embodied in the Republic of Florence, an independent city-state threatened on all sides by more powerful rival states and by the hegemony of the Medici family.
