Michelangelo's David gets a dusting
Michelangelo’s David, the world most famous sculpture, got a cleaning on Monday as a restorer with a special vacuum cleaner, a brush and a soft cloth worked over every centimeter of his body from the top of his head to his toenails. Michelangelo Buonarroti sculpted the giant marble “David” between 1501-1504 after being commissioned by the cathedral of Florence. The statue, which measures more than 5 meters (5.4 yards) high and weighs 5 tons, is considered the height of Renaissance art that draws 1.7 million visitors each year to Florence’s Galleria dell’Accademia.
