Michelangelo Week

Did you know that Florence is celebrating the Week of Michelangelo? This copy of Michelangelo's famous sculpture of David has been painted to look like tattoos and set up in the San Lorenzo market in Florence. The date 14 July is significant, because it was on that day in 1564 that Michelangelo's funeral took place in San Lorenzo. I wonder what he would think of having his David painted.
