Fine Cast Bronze Sculpture David (Michelangelo) 39cm:

This Fine Cast Bronze Sculpture David (Michelangelo) 39cm is a replica of the famous David, a masterpiece of the Renaissance. Created originally in marble between 1501 and 1504 by the Italian artist Michelangelo. The original is a 17 feet high male nude standing. The statue represents the Biblical hero David, a favoured subject in the art of Florence Italy. David was originally commissioned as one of a series of statues of prophets to be positioned along the roofline of the east end of Florence Cathederal, but instead was placed in a public square, outside the Palazzo Vecchio, the seat of civic government in Florence, in the Piazza delia Signoria where it was unveiled on September 8th 1504. In 1873 the original was moved and replaced by a replica. David would make a great addition to any home interior or exterior area. This could be a lovely centre piece as its made with fine detail.
This sculpture would last forever as it comes with a corrosion free guarantee because bronze cannot rust or corrode.

History of Bronze:

Bronze is an alloy consisting primarily of copper, commonly with about 12% tin and often with the addition of other metals (such as aluminium, magnesium, nickel, or zinc) and sometimes non-metals or metalloids such as arsenic, phosphorus or silicon.Bronze was significant to any culture that encountered it. Tools Weapons, armour and various building materials like decorative tiles made out of bronze were harder and more durable then their stone or copper predecessors. The earliest tin-alloy bronzes date to the late 4th millennium BCE in Susa (Iran) and some ancient sites in Luristan (Iran) and Mesopotamia (Iraq). Copper and tin ores are rarely found together (exceptions include one ancient site in Thailand and one in Iran), so serious bronze work has always involved trade. In Europe, the major source for tin was Great Britain’s deposits of ore in Cornwall. Phoenician traders visited Great Britain to trade goods from the Mediterranean for tin. Bronze is one of the most innovative alloys of mankind.
