Living Art | Michelangelo’s David

One day, your favorite piece of art — a famous painting or sculpture, the graffiti next door — comes to life. What happens next?

Photo of cast of Michelangelo’s David. (Originally with 1910 letter from Giuseppe Lelli). Brooklyn Museum Archives, Goodyear Archival Collection.

This statue would be in the corner of my room and would come alive purely as a reminder to me, that the part of myself that can appreciate male beauty still lives.
