The sculpture of David, one of the most famous sculptures of all time, surrounds itself by as much myth as its maker himself. When the Pope saw Michelangelo’s work for the first time, he looked at it in awe, and asked the famous artist how he could possibly create a sculpture of such utter beauty and precision. Without hesitation, Michelangelo answered:
“It’s simple. I just removed everything that isn’t David.
Start from what is absolutely needed. Keep things simple. Eliminate the clutter of stuff and thoughts.
Elimination inspires focus. It provides clarity. Simplicity, they say, is the ultimate sophistication.
