A Post Update

David and Goliath by Caravaggio; the head of Goliath was actaully the artist's self-portrait because there was a price on his head for a murder he had committed, and Caravaggio did this painting in hopes that the Cardinal whom it was for would pardon his crime so he could return to Rome.
I have had a headache for three days now.
I am sorry.
I still have it.
I feel like one of those cement blocks has been sitting on my head and I can't get it off. I have, however, significantly updated the post 3 Davids, 3 Theologies: Donatello, Michelangelo & Bernini which includes extended discussion on every element of all the pieces, as well as discussion on the work by Caravaggio pictured above, that had not been included previously.
