Other than the bronze David that Donatello made, the better known statue of David is sculpted in marble by Michelangelo, originating from the Biblical hero's portrait in the moments just before battle.

Donatello revived a classical form by casting the statue David, which was the first European sculpture of a large, free-standing nude since ancient times. He made sculpture more realistic with natural postures and expressions that reveal personality.
