The David he created is a symbol of the Florentine people’s love for peace and pursuit of freedom. The proportions of the body parts in David conform to the ideal standards of classical art. Its posture complies with the modeling law of “center of gravity transfer”, appearing relaxed and natural. David is in the midst of a complex contemplative state of mind. His contemplative gaze seems to discover the beauty and power of man himself. This discovery and understanding of human value is the fundamental spirit of the Renaissance… Aongking also has more famous ancient figure sculptures.
