Walking with David
In Florence, there are numerous images dedicated to David, and Michelangelo's work itself follows numerous other sculptures of the same subject. The statue met with immediate success, and was quickly considered an essential piece, for artistic, symbolic, and political reasons: its fame has never diminished in the least, and it has become one of the major visual reference points of Florence, a true and undisputed icon.
