David Della is a member of the Seattle City Council, Washington, USA, first elected in 2003 at the age of 47.

Michelangelo's David, sculpted from 1501 to 1504, is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture and one of Michelangelo's two greatest works of sculpture, along with the Pietà.
Michelangelo's David differs from previous representations of the subject in that David is depicted before his battle with Goliath and not after the giant's defeat (as it is in Donatello's  and Verrocchio's  versions, produced earlier).
Michelangelo's David is based on the artistic discipline of disegno, which is built on knowledge of the male human form.
