The heroic image of David has always personified strength, courage and nobility. In this representation the biblical hero is shown while, rotating the bust, about to hurl the stone that will kill the giant Goliath.
The young man seems fixed in a very brief moment of rest, in the sudden transition between two opposed movements: the extension of the arm preparing to strike and the immediately following movement of throwing. It is the culmination of the action, fixed as in a frame.
