“Magnificent replica of the Biblical Hero, David.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

I am sure statues would be of interest to many, however, this replica is so much like Michelangelo's statue in Florence that it is fascinating to see it right downtown Sioux Falls.

“Nice Replica”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

It was so cool to see this replica in Sioux Falls! There is not much in the area besides the statue, but it is right along the riverfront. Good for a quick photo op.

“In the raw!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Well, what can I say. This is a creation from the greatest artist who ever lived! Davidt can be seen, well, in the nude at Fawick Park downtown Sioux Falls. In 1971, inventor Thomas Fawick donated a bronze replica statue of Michaelangelo's statue to the city of Sioux Falls and Augustana college.

“If you can't afford a trip to Italy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Take a walk down along the riverfront in Sioux Falls. It's only a few blocks from the down town where you can shop and see the dozens of sculptures along Phillips and Main.

“Very cool piece in a decent park.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

It's amazing that this is replicated from the original David, but other than the draw of the sculpture itself there isn't a lot to see here.
