  Help, Get Me Out of This Prison
by where2next

There were two unexpected surprises at the Accademia Museum. First, the height of David was much higher, and secondly was the cool sculptures that are also in the museum. There are a set of "prisoners" such as the one shown in the photo. It's amazing as one can feel the tension or action even though it's just a rock!

If you go to Rome there's more Michelangelo. Of course, the Sistien Chapel, though there's the Pieta at St. Peter's and there is also a Moses (the church name escapes me).
