Michelangelo’s ‘David’
I’ve just spent 2 weeks walking the stones of antiquity in Tuscany, Rome and Paris, celebrating my 25th anniversary with Tarabu. Naturally I was impressed with the power of art. Take Michelangelo’s ‘David’ for instance. Of course, we’ve all seen pictures, but being in the presence of that 18 feet of perfection was something else. Then to learn that when David was finished, he was put in a public park in Florence. It was a time of political upheaval and when the people saw this David, just having thrown the stone that toppled Goliath, it gave them the courage to stand up to their own oppressor. I didn’t realize Michelangelo was a revolutionary too.
