Bernini's David

While browsing the web for Davids sculpted by different artists yesterday, I chanced upon one of my old graphics from my defunct website Coxsoft Art. Using XnView and Paint, I had combined three images to convey the dynamic action of Bernini's David (1624). This is no pretty youth standing in triumph with a foot on Goliath's decapitated head, but a rugged man in his prime in the act of wielding his slingshot to kill his enemy. I'm glad to see that my graphic is still in the public domain. CLICK to view a larger version.
