Statue of David in Davao City

Controversial Standing Statue of David in Davao City

Inscribed at the statue’s pedestal:

DAVID. The Statue is a replica of David, sculpted by Michelangelo Buonarroti in 1501. It is one of his two greatest priceless masterpieces. An Italian sculptor and paitner – one of the greatest the world has ever produced. The statue is set on the hilltop of Firenze (Florence), Italy overlooking the city.

Full size replicas of the statue around the world are found in:

> London’s Victoria and Albert Museum,
A centerpiece of a shopping mall is Surfer’s Paradise.
> Queensland, Brisbane, Australia,
> The Appian Way Shops at Ceasar’s Palace in Las Vegas,
> And our beloved DAVAO CITY is listed in the internet as one of the prestigious places.

This is now a gigantic landmark in the city which was controversial. Situated at the times beach sea wall, near the Queensland lodge, David stands still. Whenever you visit Davao City, include in your itinerary a glimpse of this replica, work of art, without malice… lol

Have fun!

Madayaw!

How come that this became controversial? Is that on what I see?

It has become controversial because of the thing you see and its location, near a lodge. malicious minds create the controversy. but if it’s the work of art that we see, people will appreciate it more. but i guess, most people are seeing the other way… 🙂 hahahhaha
