#artvideo, Some of the Sculptures of Michelangelo

(I don’t know if Michelangelo ever looked like this/image property of FBC/Omnia Caelum Studios Valencia)

Michelangelo… perhaps one of the most intelligent, and powerful artists that the Italian Renaissance gave to us. The statue of «David» is definitely one of the most beautiful examples of art and how art reflects the spirit of man and the knowledge, imagination, emotions and devotions of mankind. «David» is also a religious experience, evoking the power of the small and determined over the powerful who feel invincibility is their domain but discover that failure was closer to their destiny…

    Wonderful video, my friend! Although I find his «David» a beautifully classic sculpture, it is his «Moses» that I think is his best work. Thanks for sharing!

    Did you post this as a reaction to the Florida school Principal who was forced to resign after a parent complained that ‘David’ was pornographic?

    1. Absolutely! In Florida there are many puritanical folk that really think they live in the Middle Ages. I had an exhibit in a small town on the Gulf Coast of Florida, Sarasota, and while my wife and I were sitting in front of one of the walls of the exhibit, here comes a young father with a child of about 7/8 years of age and when he passed in front of one of my paintings that had a surrealist-expressionist nude, he covered the child’s eyes! We could not believe it! We totally flipped! But to go from that to actually pushing a school principal out because she showed a religious and majestic work of art is, well, it should be a criminal offence! So here it is, David in their face! Thank you Malc, I really wanted an opportunity to rant, and I appreciate it! All the best!

        A man after my own heart F. You might notice I have subtle rants occasionally where the people I’m having a go at end up thanking me for it 🙂
