Stuff That Weighs More than Me: David

Well probably not the cheesy fiberglass replica pictured behind me.  (Which is out front of the Mad Greek Cafe in Baker, CA).  But the real deal, for sure!  The Michelangelo’s David is one of the most copied statues of all time.  (The plaster cast version at the Victoria and Albert museum apparently has a detachable fig leaf that was created after Queen Vicky saw David’s “endowment” for the first time.)  But the original is an unquestioned masterpiece, carved from a single piece of marble. 

Height: Over 17 ft.
Weight: Over 6 tons

Conclusion: Even after I ate a homemade strawberry shake at The Mad Greek Cafe, Michelangelo’s David weighed more than me.
