Last Day in Florence

I ended my four weeks in Florence with a visit to the most famous statue in the world, Michelangelo’s David. The Carrara marble statue weighs over five tons. (1501-1504) The photo has a slight red cast I couldn’t get rid of,

Join Becky’s month of Spiky Squares: Spiky. Two rules. Must be Spiky somehow; there is a wide range of interpretations. The photo must be square. Thanks, Becky for another inventive challenge.
