On 1501, Michelangelo recived the official contract to undertake the task for a David statue. He chose to use a single piece of marble, a piece which was considered useless by everyone else according to legend.
Michelangelo worked on the biblical hero for a little more than 3 years, revolutionizing the traditional concept of David icon. He portrayed David during the moments before his battle with Goliath rather than the triumphant moments after the battle as David is traditionally depicted.
