David is holding Goliath’s head in his left hand, and the sword in his right. His face has a nonchalant expression on it while he is holding the head as if he is not impressed or phased by his decapitated head. There is more variety with David’s human-like face and Goliath’s green and bleeding face. There is unity in the similar color scheme, but the visual elements are varied in order to achieve intricate and complex relationships in it. The piece is asymmetrical with david taking a large portion of the left side, however there is
He wears a mercury hat and what appears to be boots on his legs. 4Being mainly a practical garment of the lower classes, the hat has many varieties and shapes according to different regions. The laurel on the top of the hat is the symbol for a victorious general in roman times. 4Peasants, shepherds and many others working in the fields wore these hats to protect them from the sun. Since David came from the hot desert to battle Goliath, it is appropriate for David to be wearing indeed clothes for hot weather. It is still uncertain whether the boots David wears are military gear or shepherd's boots. There is no reason for David to be wearing military footgear since he was too weak to carry the additional armor he was offered before the fight. In David's left hand, you can see him holding onto the stone that was cast at Goliath. With his right hand, David leans on Goliath's sword of which he used to cut off the giant's head and stab him. The sword represents God's role in this story; David would be too weak to carry the sword alone. This statue was originally placed at the Palazzo Medici, but is now located at the Museo Nazionale del Bargello in Florence, Italy.
David also sees himself as having a great deal of influence on others and prides himself on that fact. When David was walking along the street with a coworker, a girl mistook him for a celebrity and David found it amusing to play along. David’s narration describes that the coworker was not amused by this joke and “avoided [David] for the next six months” (DeLillo 2.14). Once David sees the influence his appearance and pride could have on one coworker, he believes that he

David is extremely buff, a quality that was highly revered during the Greek and Roman eras, and he shows off the male body very well. He is in a slight contraposto stance, where the artist illustrates the natural counterbalance of the body through the bending of the hips in one direction and the legs in another direction.
The concept of the “Australian legend” is an idea that has been altered many times throughout history, however the common conception of this interpretation has remained the same. This perception of a typical Australian legend is of someone who is extremely strong, independent and very capable in a natural outdoor environment such as the bush or outback. Many different sources display this idea and include the same or related characteristics. Russel Ward, author of “The Australian Legend”, focuses on an examination of the development of the "Australian character" and it’s influence on Australian culture. This was very significant in creating and supporting this idea. Crocodile Dundee, a famous Australian movie, references many aspects of what
Donatello, considered a master of the nude, cared little to produce them in his sculptures. David, an exception to his previous work, would be completely naked if not for his boots and hat. A hint of romantic charm lies in the figure’s hat. A broad brim garlanded with bay leaves, the hat throws David’s face into a deep shadow and seems to suggest the simple life of a shepherd. The whole pose of David is inert, tame and non-threatening, despite the severed head beneath

Those who mostly dislike or find the paintings atrocious would be the orthodox Jews, such as Asher 's parents.

But he might have drawn back because the shadows on his face are deep as holes. There are two shadows curved like little hooks around the ends of his smile, as if to frame it and try to keep it there— that one, first smile that looked like it might have hurt his face" (Erdrich, 111). The shadows in the photo signified Henry 's bleak outlook and attempted to conceal his true feelings through the darkness.

Francis Schaeffer summarized his the entire book when he wrote, "To understand where we are in today's world–in our intellectual ideas and in our cultural and political lives–we must trace three lines in history, namely, the philosophic, the scientific, and the religious" (Schaeffer, 2005, p.20). Schaeffer is mainly stating that society is getting away from its Christians roots. He walks through instances in history where society has moved away from the principle teachings of the Bible. He believes that the problems in society are because individuals are ignoring the Christian principles that this world was built upon. He warns that this shift can have a catastrophic effect on how the world will look in the future.
