I've seen pictures and heard the gushing reports about the sculpture but I will admit to a hiccup of awe when I saw the sculpture standing at the far end of his hall. The David is 17ft tall. Apparently it took Michelangelo three years of serious chipping to complete His masterpiece. I especially loved "the hand" which according to the experts is proportionally oversized.
