Recently, the museum has moved many other of Michaelangelo's sculpture in the hallway leading to the David (at least, since my visit last year). This is one of the most recognized symbols of Florence and well worth seeing. There are also other things to see in the museum: magnificent examples of Early Italian Renaissance paintings, in addition to numerous other important works of art. On this visit, there was a reproduction of the David in the courtyard that was done full scale in plastic, with painted pink skin, blue eyes and yellow hair - rather shocking as it looked like the work of a vandal, but it was noteworthy (got in this review!).
