Odd poll question on art

Just curious is all, you all know the famous David sculpture done by Michelangelo, but more artists did a David and I was wondering which one you liked more. I can tell you straight up, Bernini nailed it when he did his version of David.

Down below in order left to right

Verrocchio, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Bernini

Re: Odd poll question on art

Sorry... but I'm not gonna sit there and look at sculptures of naked guys to see which one I like more. I understand the work that goes into them... how difficult the human body is to realistically represent... yada yada yada. But c'mon. They could have been doing sculptures of naked women.

The Greek were the gayest civilization ever. Well, at least until all the Italians decided, "Hey, let's be **** like the Greek used to be!"

Hey hey. Watch it. Not all Italians agree with their artistic interpretations. In fact I kind of like the Venus de Milo. Too bad the chick is missing her arms.

Re: Odd poll question on art

I'm surprised, I figured you guys would pick more of a masculine statue

Bernini shows David like he took a picture of him before he threw the rock at the Goliath. His facial expression showing the immense concentration before he throws it. Just awsome.

Then it's like Michelangelo's looks like David is just standing there nude going "Yup, rock in my hand.. and I'm naked.. I like being naked'

Donatello's looks more feminine.. I mean look at the body language there lol

and of course Verrocchio's looks like a chick. Hardly a warrior to take down a Goliath
