David is a naked, tall, muscular and well-developed young man. His standing posture is very natural and graceful: his legs open naturally, his right hand droops naturally, his head turns to the left, and his genitals droop naturally. David’s face looks particularly handsome, eyes are big and divine, nose is very high, angular, looks very three-dimensional. European men are generally tall and have a lot of hair. In this sculpture, the male hair is thick and curly, and the pubic hair is also more.
David is a concrete embodiment of Renaissance humanism. Its praise of human body, on the surface, is the “Renaissance” of ancient Greek art. In essence, it shows that people have been freed from the shackles of the dark middle ages and fully realize the great power of human beings in transforming the world. The liberation of a statue is not only a symbol of liberation in the process of sculpture.
