Stone Giant: Michelangelo's David and How He Came to Be

Stone Giant: Michelangelo's David and How He Came to Be

C$16.95Price

No one wanted the "giant." The hulking block of marble lay in the work yard, rained on, hacked at, and abandoned—until a young Michelangelo saw his David in it. This is the story of how a neglected, discarded stone became a masterpiece for all time. It is also a story about art—about an artist’s vision and process, and about the ways in which we humans see ourselves reflected in art.
