I don’t know how to handle this Art & Design question and need guidance.

The iconic Renaissance sculpture, David, by Michelangelo, can be seen at the Museo Accademia in Florence, Italy. During the Renaissance there was a return to Greek classicism although the period had innovations of its own. All I want you to do is examine David for classical canons. Name the canons and apply them to the sculpture as you describe it. Don’t get carried away with discussing the Biblical story; only discuss what you see in the sculpture. Again, I am interested in the stylistic issues as they relate to the culture. Here I am interested in the Greek culture, not the Renaissance culture; we will get to it in a few weeks. Again, I want you discuss the influences of the Greek culture on this sculpture.
