The Bronze Replica Of David Is A Masterpiece Of Renaissance Sculpture Created Between 1501 And 1504, By The Italian Artist Michelangelo. The Statue Represents The Biblical Hero David, A Favoured Subject In The Art Of Florence. Originally Commissioned As One Of A Series Of Statues Of Prophets To Be Positioned Along The Roof Line Of The East End Of Florence Cathedral, The Statue Was Instead Placed In A Public Square, Outside The Palazzo Della Signoria, The Seat Of Civic Government In Florence, Where It Was Unveiled On 8 September 1504. Because Of The Nature Of The Hero That It Represented, It Soon Came To Symbolize The Defence Of Civil Liberties Embodied In The Florentine Republic, An Independent City-State Threatened On All Sides By More Powerful Rival States And By The Hegemony Of The Medici Family. The Eyes Of David, With A Warning Glare, Were Turned Towards Rome. This Relic Work Of Art Was Cast Using The Ancient Method Of Lost-Wax Casting And Stained With A Brown Patina Finish For Preservation. David Stands Upon A Black, Variegated Black Marble Base With The Artist Michelangelo'S Signature. Michelangelo Di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (6 March 1475 ? 18 February 1564), Commonly Known As Michelangelo, Was An Italian Renaissance Painter, Sculptor, Architect, Poet, And Engineer. Despite Making Few Forays Beyond The Arts, His Versatility In The Disciplines He Took Up Was Of Such A High Order That He Is Often Considered A Contender For The Title Of The Archetypal Renaissance Man, Along With Fellow Italian Leonardo Da Vinci. Michelangelo's Output In Every Field During His Long Life Was Prodigious; When The Sheer Volume Of Correspondence, Sketches, And Reminiscences That Survive Is Also Taken Into Account, He Is The Best-Documented Artist Of The 16Th Century.

FAQ's

What material are your sculptures made out of?

All of our sculptures are made from100% hot cast bronze, and handmade in the ancient lost wax casting method. We never sell cheap cold cast sculptures or resins!

What is the difference between hot cast and cold cast bronzes?

Hot cast bronze is created by pouring a molten metal mixture into a mold.  Before the metal can be poured, our artists must first create the mold on a medium such as clay, rubber, or wood.  Each mold allows for a limited number of pours, and therefore a limited amount of sculptures can be created in any given round of production before the mold is destroyed and the artist must create a new mold.

Cold cast is actually made from resins and plastics which are painted over. They are cheaper, lighter, and less durable.

Generally speaking, hot cast bronzes are very time consuming and limited in their production, whereas cold cast resins can be mass produced and are inexpensive to create.

Do you do custom work?

Custom work is available in some cases.  Please contact us with the details of the job.

Can I sell you one of my own pieces?
