Only One Of Two Replicas of David

St Augustine is the oldest city in the United States.
The settlers of the city have been, over the centuries, a handful of interesting men.
Men looking forward from across the big pond.
Planting their feet in new soil.
Thinking hard. Standing tall.
 Believe it or not this statue is @ Ripley's Believe It Or Not here in St Augustine Florida. Originally from the New York World's Fair. When I take my walk around the block I look up from Abbott St and there he is, looking down at me, over a hedge of boxwood! 17ft, one piece of Carrere Marble, sculpted in Italy.

He always amazes me! After a year of living here I wondered how I could have never noticed such a gigantic David staring at me over the bushes but then realized he had been stashed on the side of the building while they did some maintenance. Nice pictures
