David began as a shepherd, victor then king, whereby he became an allegory for history and culture. King David is most recognised and remembered for his heroic slaying against the Philistine, Goliath. David’s success against this giant became emblematic of good triumphing evil and the importance of faith.
This notion was revived by Michelangelo, who breathed David back to life to represent the idealised human form that flourished within the Renaissance era. This masterpiece was created during a period characterised by artistic delineation and intellectual fervour.
Love Ally has envisaged this timeless colossal marble sculpture by producing the bust of David. Part of his slingshot is visible resting peacefully on his right shoulder when he defeated Goliath. The most drawing feature of our candle is David’s humble, but bold eyes. Beyond his biblical status, David has become a symbol of history and culture.
Wherever you place him, Love Ally’s King David candle will always emit harmony and beauty whilst lit.
