David and Perseus

While the original David has been moved to the Accademia, there is a replica out in the Piazza Signoria near the Uffizi. Photos are not permitted of the original, but you can take all you want of the replica. The detail in both the original and the replica are extraordinary, and while I took close-ups of various aspects, I thought his hand was most appropriate to share publicly.

Just across the corner from David is Perseus with Medusa's head. The detail in this bronze statue is also amazing. These are just two of the sculptures that you can see right out in the open.
