I'd hang that on my wall.

Donatello (1386-1466), David, c.1420s-1460s, Museo Nazionale del Bargello, Florence.
The sculpture was originally mounted on a pedastal, with an inscription which read: “The victor is whoever defends the fatherland. 
God crushes the wrath of an enormous foe. 
Behold! A boy overcame a great tyrant. 
Conquer, o citizens!”
