Michelangelo's David

When in Florence, this is a must see!

I can really appreciate what it takes to sculpt something so fabulous.  While I have never tried sculpting, I can just imagine the precision, skill and patience it requires.  I mean, I can't even whittle something out of wood that is recognizable - it's just incredible what Michelangelo was able to do with a piece of marble.  

I've been here a few times and it's still a bit of a jaw-dropper to me.  The imposing size, the stare, and the details in the sculpture are just fantastic.  Make it a point to see it, at least once.  It's famous for a reason.

This sits in the Galleria dell'Accademia in Florence, Italy.  If you are planning to visit, book your tickets in advance because the lines get really long, especially in the summer.  While the rest of the museum is nice, this is clearly the highlight of a visit there.  Enjoy!
