A Different Take on "David"

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Just found this photoshop job.  David after a few years of marriage.




Maybe this was what was actually "in the stone."

I wonder who was the model for that?


I seem to recall reading about an actual scholarly debate on whether a certain key part of David's anatomy was disproportionately small.  It was said to be less than half the length of his hand.  The conclusion was that since he was supposed to be facing Goliath at the time, the smaller size was entirely appropriate.
