One of my favorites....
White has been SO done to death.
This would look really great if it was painted a pretty colour,
there are no words ..it just is!
I think you need to go a little to the West for the sculptor and a little more to the East for the subject. Neither was Greek, but I'll give it to you that the weather there demands few clothes! ;-)
It is white marble, it's a classic. You paint it a "pretty colour", it may as well be plastic. Also, there is nothing Greek about this sculpture. It's from the High Renaissance, in Italy and Michelangelo, the sculptor, was Italian. The Character, David is from the bible, also not Greek. But yes, the form and the medium can be said to have been inspired from Greek Art.

If That's Greek, then would you say that Francis Bacon come from Picasso? No? Or that Mirò comes from Picasso No? Well precisely the answer is yes, they do... But, would buildings from lets say London's 18th century also come from renaissance... or the White House from any classic reference? maybe roman? No! the true fact is that every thing is connected in line with its past but still, the evolution is such that it becomes something of its own right. And rightly so.

In The Beginning of My Life I was disowned, rejected, disconnected from Love, but not pleasure. I knew how to get out of this Reality, this physical plane or Dimension. I would become creative with material within my reach. Assemble utility items that I could sell, trade or barter. At school I had access to tools that could help with any task or project. I started with lamps that I fashioned into miniature fireplaces, with logs that had a red light accent like flames. They were built out of used plywood, elmers glue, a few nails, and agate stones that I tumbled and polished. They had a small teak mantle inserted and a metal grate formed in welding 101. After a dozen sales at $20 each I moved up to coffee tables. I made a few dozen for $50 to $100 and moved up to Chairs & Rockers. I had an idea to copy a long back spindle chair similar to ones I had seen in a Frank Loyd Wright Building in Racine, Wisconsin. I made 8 chairs in 1 month and then acquired a job at General Electric.
I was in the 11th Grade and proficient as a Craftsman. I Enlisted in the U.S. Army and never returned to that kind of creation. I was A.W.O.L. In Europe and supported myself with Chalk Drawings of Madonna & Child outside of Cathedrals, with a brass bowl, in the bottom corner, to accept tribute, that church goers gave admirably. I can Hustle, Sell, Barter, or Trade any thing to anyone, except my Art. I deliberately blow the deal and resent frugal Patrons, resulting in a loss of friendship, and gaining a poor reputation. I think its age related. When I was young everyone was friendly and very physical with me. Older women always supported me even when their cuckolded husbands objected. Now, I'm older and untouchable. I don't even get hugs. I might create images that nobody understands, even myself.......you know......undecipherable. ALOHA
In the search for credibility and aplomb, many of us have a tough time. So Thomas, with respect to Michelangelo's David, your point is?

In Line With The Times, Interpret The Flow, Represent The Here & Now. All Of The Great Artists Are. All Artists Are Great. Contemporary Art Society Is Dead, Replaced By An Art Mafia International That Censor's (some) Lifetime Artists & Discriminates Based Upon A superior-attitude, know-it-all, control-freak consciousness that has no lengths it will not go to suppressing said, "Life-time" Artists, that Collectors will battle Over in 100 Years. My point is: Support Living Oil-Painters by becoming a Patron, and supporting Culture. All of the past Masters are Honored & Cherished, and I am Insulted and rejected at every step. ALOHA
there is no point we from this day and age can possibly make. these famous sculptures from the past just are magnificent. we should be too humble to be worthy enough to critique these pieces
All these Art Emperors live based on the death Artist’s Legacies with no doubt. While the Artist is alive, even they don't accept his/her call in any time. Please don’t give me wrong. you can test them yourselves. Mail them for a review or exhibition of your artworks, you will find your applications in a trashcan quite soon. They live in nice mansions or a House of Art with proudly call Art Galleries/Museums and the artists are suffering of poverty and struggling to pay the bills to live. Well. That kind of artist will be very lucky if he/she sells some paintings to those Emperors/Art Collectors, and they call him/her back in 5 to ten years if he/she is still alive or death. The good news will be if he/she is death to make some money but tons of money. They take your paintings and make their own stories about them and make them as an iconic painting and that is the time that their lottery matches for a jackpot. Basically, we all work for them for free. When they call their selves the Emperors, another meaning of that is the Slavery Masters. We create works of art until we are alive with no respect or appreciation and the end, they take advantage of them mercilessly. I am not venge it to discuss deeply but reality is the word of Lord. In the whole history of art, Mark Rothko was realized the exact meaning of Art Emperors which I am talking about.

Segun Leonardo, las esculturas se hacen primero en tierra y luego en marmol. Una vez que esta realizada en barro se coloca dentro de un cajón. A este se le hacen agujeros, y en ellos se colocan varillas de hierro que se marcan junto con estos. Luego se saca la figura de barro y se pone la piedra para socavarla.
