Protecting David

I've discovered another of my own combined graphics from my old website Coxsoft Art, showing three views of Michelangelo's David (1501-1504). The news story that prompted my search for a picture of David is that the statue is to be protected from earth tremors by a new plinth. The region around Florence, where the statue stands, has had hundreds of earth tremors in recent days. Experts fear that micro fractures in David's legs could bring the statue crashing down. The Italian government will spend around £156,000 on the new plinth. The work will take about a year to complete. Fingers crossed it's not too late (CLICK).
