The statue of David is in the Academia in Florence, Italy. A replica stands outside as you enter the city of Florence. There are many other statues carved by Michelangelo.

Lucrezia di Antonio di Sandro degli Ubaldini da Gagliano was Michelangelo's stepmother. His father married her three years after the death of Michelangelo's mother, Francesca Neri. She lived only twelve years after the marriage and left no real discernible mark on the family.
First and most obvious is in part the fact that most studio training of that period utilized male models as it was not appropriate or even allowed for women to attend studios as students let alone model in the nude (this prejudice wouldn't break for some time later). Therefore artists had to deal with what they had, which often necessitated male models 'standing in' for female poses for ie. paintings and explains part of the somewhat 'masculine' look of some female depictions. But it is unfair to be absolute since, in light of Michs illegal and/or immoral sneaking of cadavers for study, its most likely that he and others also would have studied live females, albeit in privacy. (Ironically the earlier Greeks, which instructed Europeans on the figure, were much less prejudiced and their sophisticated realism of their female sculptures makes it obvious that they did not have this handicap). The forms of male models are more prominent and easier to translate etc. (than female) which also makes it understandable why there's a predominance of great male figure work - fueled in part by male testosterone designing those often pious but nevertheless fantastic and powerful depictions of action scenes etc. Speculation about Mich's sexuality influencing his work is baseless and mention of it in literature is, I can only imagine, an unfortunate part of the 'alternate' crowds agenda - besides it is irrelevant and has nothing to do with the art form Renaissance artists cultivated. Similar confusion haunts Greek work as well with the seemingly more 'feminine' Classical period work being overly praised by the far more advanced work of the Hellenistic period which captivated Mich intellectually.
Michelangelo's work was different from all other sculptors during the Renaissance, he claimed to see a form struggling to get out of every block of marble that he chose. He made them beautiful and realistic, his 'David' shows great attention to detail in the musculature and tension, 'The Pieta' is another, some parts so highly polished the marble looks like skin.
He was inspired by events and culture.
Michelangelo, (1475-1564) worked on the 'Last Judgement' in the Sistine Chapel from 1536 to 1541, twenty-five years after he completed the ceiling. He was 61 years old when he began the 'Last Judgement'.
Mary is much larger in comparison to Jesus than one would expect. This was so Mary could cradle Jesus' body in her lap. The genius of Michelangelo is that the disproportion is not easy to see; however, if you consciously compare the size of Mary's hands to those of Jesus the difference in scale becomes apparent.
Because when was working for Julius the 2nd he become better and better at art.
No, he never married.
Michelangelo was 88 when he died.
Michelangelo's earliest sculpture was a stone relief called the 'Battle of the Centaurs'. He created it when he was about 17.
Michelangelo had four brothers but no sisters. Their names were Lionardo, Buonarroto, Giovansimone, and Gismondo. He was the second oldest after Lionardo.
No, he was an artist of the Italian High Renaissance.

Most famous is the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, but there is also the statue of Moses, which is the tomb of Julius II.
No. He was commissioned to paint the ceiling, but because he was perfectionist it took him longer than it should have. He wouldn't like a section that he had finished and would take it out starting over. This caused a bit of a disagreement between him and the Pope.

A quick wikipedia search is likely to tell you all you need to know about Michelangelo's David. Click link below!
There are three more Davids in Florence: two by Donatello, one by Verrocchio.
In the center of the painting is Jesus himself, who decides if half the human race joins him in Heaven, or must be sentenced to Hell for the rest of their afterlife. A lot of people are typically confused by The Last Judgment because of the fact that there is a lot going on at the same time. If looked closely, the top half represents those who are saints, angels and those who will go to Heaven, while the bottom still has those who are being resurrected or going to Hell on a boat led by a demon. All in all, this has to be the most complex painting Michelangelo has ever made.
This scene is part of the large ceiling fresco in the Sistine Chapel. The ceiling was painted in the years 1408-1412.
