Created between 1501 and 1504, this masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture depicts the Biblical hero David and is a favorite subject in the art of Florence. Originally commissioned as one of a series of statues of prophets to be positioned along the roofline 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. Due to the nature of the hero it represents, the statue soon came to symbolize the defense 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. Crafted using the ancient method of lost-wax casting, this relic work of art has been stained with a brown patina finish for preservation. David stands upon a variegated black marble base bearing the artist Michelangelo's signature. Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (6 March 1475 – 18 February 1564) was a master of many trades, including painting, sculpture, architecture, poetry, and engineering. 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. With its intricate details and rich history, this bronze replica of Michelangelo's David is a true masterpiece of Renaissance art. Add it to your collection today and experience the legacy of one of the greatest artists of all time.
This piece is high quality. Each piece of the sculpture is separate and can be displayed separately and moved around on the carpet. This means that the sculpture can be changed from time to time making it more interesting.
Would recommend sculptures like this for the flexibility of display.
The pieces are perfect without any blemishes and look to be new.
Will buy again from this provider.
Excellent quality bronze sculpture consistent with pictures and description. Very pleased with this purchase.
This is a nice addition to our library shelves. It sits on some home design books and really stands out. I have already received several compliments.
Excellent, beautifully crafted, totally art at it's highest form. Great price point and shipping from UPS, very secure.
The Elephant is amazing
I love it. You guys are master craftsmen. I have a few of your works which are also great .Keep adding artists like Moore and Giacometti. I will purchase any and all that you produce.
Thanks, Marc Silverman Rockville Maryland 20854
Love the blue Havana Man. This site has great bronze art. Best collection I have seen in a long time.
Very presentable and lifelike. Demonstrates dolphins at play and coveys the joy therein.
Lovely piece. I may want another Diana with a dog. Perhaps at a discount. What is available? Expert and fast shipping. You guys are great. Thanks, Rick
Hi folks, I am a figure artist living in a very conservative community where the local art venues are reluctant to exhibit the simplest nudes. To see your array of uncensored realism is encouraging. The one piece I have received from you will hopefully be the beginning of my collection.
I ordered Lady Justice for a very special occasion, I was not disappointed. Before I ordered her, I spent a lot of time looking at different sites worldwide, and decided on Bronzhaus. Ordering/Delivery/Cost were seamless.
I live in Ontario Canada, and delivery was prompt and fast(4 days).
She came wrapped so snug and packed, there was no movement at all, even though Custom's inspection made the box look damaged, she wasn't. The detail is perfect, the colouring is beautiful and varied. Some spots on the finish look "rough" but either by design or accident, this does not deter from her beauty, if anything it gives it a historic weathered look, and makes her look more authentic and regal. Overall, very happy and will be appreciated as a gift.
The ballerina goes so well with the Cirque du Soleil trapeze work. I now have three stick figures from Bronzhaus (I have others that are not stick figures). I love art. I love sculpture. I love beauty. I have several other bronzes for which I have paid in excess of $10,000. I have had other artist friends of mine, when they are making a delivery or just coming for a visit and they always notice the bronzes. Not one of them has ever questioned, criticized or denigrated these works. I do avoid, however, the copies that are well-known in their original state. But for now I am very much enjoying the extra "bay leaf" in the artistic meatloaf that these bronzes bring to my home and garden.
Always consistent high quality! Real treasures in a time of plastic junk offered by others.
Beautiful piece! Glad to own it!
