It took him 2 years, and the result is 17ft tall (over 5 metres) and weighs a whopping 12,478 lbs (5,660kg)!
Over 8 million people per year visit the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence so they can marvel at the iconic marble statue
It looks magnificent from a distance, but you need to take a closer look to appreciate Michelangelo’s incredible attention to detail
