David by Gian Lorenzo Bernini
David is a sculpture by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, executed between 1623 and 1624 and exhibited in the Galleria Borghese in Rome.
The sculpture depicts David in the instant preceding the throwing of the stone that will hit the giant Goliath, called by the Philistines to fight against the Israelite army of King Saul. On the ground are the armor given to him by King Saul and a cithara, the hero's usual attribute, here significantly ending in an eagle's head, evident testimony of the patronage and celebratory intent of the Borghese family.
