Look at the picture... no, this is not The David... But this is David, also... you know, Michelangelo was not the only one to think about this young boy.
I have to recognize that I prefer this David, made by Donatello, in bronze, in 1430. And... it is also in Florence, in Museo Nazionale del Bargello, don't miss the chance to compare!!
By the way, in the same museum you even will find another David, also by Donatello, this time in marble, in a very different style.
All this, of course is with permission of Bernini, who made also another David, which is located Rome, there is a picture in my Bernini travelogue

Address: Museo Nazionale del Bargello
