The young shepherd boy warrior, by Italian artist Donatello, was the first significant free standing life size nude bronze in the renaissance. This Italian sculpture caused much controversy due to the depiction of the nude male body. The body of the statue is male, yet is constructed with a major overtone of femininity. Many believe that Donatello purposefully did this in order to symbolize the intervention of God in the battle between "David and Goliath"; this is even more eminent in the carefree stance over the giant, Goliath, depicted at his feet.
