Well probably not the cheesy fiberglass replica pictured behind me. (Which is out front of the Mad Greek Cafe in Baker, CA). But the real deal, for sure! The Michelangelo's David is one of the most copied statues of all time. (The plaster cast version at the Victoria and Albert museum apparently has a detachable fig leaf that was created after Queen Vicky saw David's "endowment" for the first time.) But the original is an unquestioned masterpiece, carved from a single piece of marble.
Height: Over 17 ft.
Weight: Over 6 tons
Conclusion: Even after I ate a homemade strawberry shake at The Mad Greek Cafe, Michelangelo's David weighed more than me.
So often we feel like this biggest and heaviest thing around, right? But as this blog proves, it simply isn't true. I've taken a long and look at some really heavy creatures and things in this world, and I've got to tell you, I feel comforted. It's my deepest wish that we can all recognize that we're not the heaviest objects in the universe. And I dearly hope that spending a little time comparing our size to that of a giant redwood tree causes spend a little less time comparing ourselves with one another. After careful study I've determined that I deserve the space I occupy in the universe. After all, there are thousands of other creatures, plants and things in and around this world that that weigh more than me.
