An ode to Michelangelo.
David was a huge rock who's not living a happy life. People kept telling him that he would never be a work of art. Until a young artist called Michelangelo came around and liberated the warrior inside of him.
This picture book full of poetic language describes how great works of art are achieved, and how much suffering and training the artists have to go through before they created greatness.
