Statue of David–Florence, Italy

The statue of David by Michelangelo is one of the most fascinating pieces of art that you will ever see.  For those of you that are photographers I’m sure you have seen much better photos of David than mine.  I think the important thing to note here is you must see David with your own eyes.  I can definitely appreciate art however I’m far from an expert or anyone that could critique artwork in any way.  With that said when you see David with your own eyes you will definitely see the amazing detail in this sculpture. Additionally, upon seeing David with your own eyes  you will get a better understanding of what it would take to do such an amazing feat of artwork.  If you want to understand the history of David I would recommend looking at Wikipedia for more information:  DAVID

Another thing that I found fascinating was that Michelangelo actually took dead bodies and did autopsies so he had a better understanding of how the human body was built.  This enabled him to best reflect the human anatomy in his artwork.  In my humble opinion, to go to that extent to be able to replicate a human in marble is fascinating.  I don’t think I would quite go to that extent for any artwork but still pretty cool.  For now I stick with stick figures and no autopsies 🙂

Enjoy and Take Care!!

About Adventures in the Burbs (72 Articles)
I'm now considered a survivor. A survivor of what you may ask? For my entire life I have been a walking time bomb due to a visitor embedded in my brain called an AVM, or an Arteriovenous Malformation. I never actually knew I had it. My story of survival is so improbably and spectacular that it is worthy of an entire book in itself. I may have a post in here somewhere on my blog that covers it. In the end I’ve survived a brain hemorrhage, brain surgery and I’ve been left with Epilepsy and Left Side Neglect. Believe it or not, Left Side Neglect has been nothing less than a fascinating experience although I don’t recommend it for the feeble or weak minded. In the end that time bomb exploded yet I’m still here to put my adventures up on this blog and I will never let my survivor experience hold me back from life. Although I’m now considered a “Survivor”, throughout life I have been many things and it seems I have assumed many different identities along the way. For me life has been a zigzagging adventure woven with change and that change has always been good. I’m truly blessed as my life has been nothing short of amazing and my cup has always been overflowing even in the worst of times. I’ve had a good family, good friends, excellent mentors along the way and an amazing wife. Wonder if she will actually ever read this?? I’ve been a musician, a dishwasher, a pizza maker, a break-dancer, a skateboarder, a long haired metal head, a United States Marine, a husband, a father to many, a technologist, a college student, an adventure racer, a businessman, a manager, a leader, a crisis manager, a Harley Davidson enthusiast, a wannabe bourbon connoisseur, an amateur RV’er, an amateur blogger, an amateur writer, an amateur photographer, a thinker, a doer, a traveler, a wannabe digital nomad, an adventurer, and a remote worker. So as you can see I’ve maintained just a few identities….but what’s in an identity anyway. I know my identity as a “survivor” will not sum up my existence nor define me as a person. My name is Will and I am all of those identities listed above and then some. Hopefully you will join me on my journey. Do take Care, Will
