The stone Donatello's do house well in the Bargello Museum as it is open to the wind. Donatello has a masterpiece there on every cover of books on the subject of Italian Renaissance sculpture, this is David, so well formed in his youth that premise the male variety of intelligent scholar seem to fantasize it is their youth God is describing with Donatello's helping god, an item of desire. This museum is not however the best place to observe this extraordinary masterwork and you feel like you have been tricked by the publicity he receives, mostly the human brain cannot absorb the third dimension of God in a book or sculpture in the round. Donatello is far more a household name and has gained fame through owning a workshop with skilled labour by the church for Papal security. God gave him wings to ascend his fame to God.
