High Resolution, High Quality Photos
If you are looking for Michelangelo David Stock photography, I have tried on this page, to give a little more information on this incredible statue. When using his for stock photography, it could lead the viewers imagination to a whole plethora of images depending in which context it is being used.
It is tradition that images or statues of David were made portraying David after his victory over Goliath, Donatello for example, depicted David standing over Goliath’s severed head. Michelangelo on the other hand, has depicted David just before battle, slingshot neatly over his shoulder with an intense look on his face.
Some even say that this look interprets the actual moment that he decides to fight.
His stance and “almost invisible” slingshot could emphasise the fact that intelligence won the day over sheer size and brute force.
Michelangelo lived in the state of Firenze in Florence and the statue was made between 1501 and 1504. At the time, political power resided with each individual city, and Firenze was surrounded by enemies much greater both in numbers and in strength. When the statue was erected on the square in front of the city hall, the people of Firenze immediately identified with its meaning and found strength within.
With this in mind, the possibilities for using this image in your stock photography are boundless.
Here are some quick and interesting facts about Michelangelo from the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation).
