This masterpiece that is named David, done by Michelangelo was created during the Renassiance around 1501-1504. This piece is idolized by all of the world because it is so incredibly realistic for the era that it was created in. Up until this point people of that age had never seen such amazing features on a statue before. If you think about the difficulty that it must have taken to create this statue with such life like features at that time with very limited tools is just mind blowing. Reasons such as these prove why Michelangelo a true artist and this piece is a masterpiece. Even if a piece was created today it would be hard to duplicate the realistic features as Michelangelo did. This piece will live on into infamy for those exact reason.
