The marble slab that eventually became Michelangelo's David was originally intended as a statue of what famous character?

Answer:

HERCULES

The marble slab that eventually became Michelangelo's sculpture of David originally belonged to an artist named Agostino di Duccio, who planned to turn it into a statue of Hercules. 10 years after di Duccio abandoned his sculpture, another artist attempted to work with it, but found the marble too difficult. Finally, in 1501, Michelangelo began his famous sculpture.
