The giant block of stone had been lying in Florence for 40 years, but nobody had been able to do anything with it—until Michaelangelo came along and began to carve away everything that was not David. Full color illustrations.

"Describes how a hulking, abandoned block of marble inspired a young Michelangelo to create one of the world's most famous masterpieces, offering insight into an artist's vision and process as well as how humans see themselves reflected in art."
