Iconic Florence

Self portrait of Michelangelo
Carved blindfolded to win an argument that he was indeed the greatest artist of the day.

Santa Maria del Fiore (or the Duomo)

Michelangelo's David. This is actually a replica. The original is in a museum -- Galleria dell'Accademia -- which does not allow photographs.

The Arno

I love the way the shadow is clothing David!
