Artist's description:

Michelangelo’s David has most of his weight on one foot. This concept, known as contrapposto, is an idea that can be traced back to the popular khora, or idealised nude male marble statues of classical Greek and Roman art. Most scholars agree that these were invariably painted in rather bright colours, but there seems to be no evidence that David was ever presented in colour.
Despite this, I decided to have a go at interpreting this amazing sculpture in glorious technicolour. So here it is.
