Statue of David is a statue sculpted by Michelangelo from 1501 to 1504 - a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture and one of Michelangelo's two greatest sculptures. This statue is seen as a symbol of youthful beauty and strength.
Statue of David - the hero in the Bible carved from a single Carrara stone.

7. "The Ninth Wave - The Ninth Wave" by Ivan Aivazovsky
Ivan Aivazovsky's " The Ninth Wave - The Ninth Wave " depicts a group of shipwreck victims, all of whom are about to be engulfed by a giant wave. A cruel blow of natural power, waves of waves, surged up violently and fell down with tremendous power, revealing a moment of deep pools below. The constant movement of clouds and bubbles, further adds to the impression of a raging storm.

The Moses statue is the famous sculpture of Michelangelo - the Renaissance artist and sculptor.
A famous anecdote states that, after finishing the Moses statue, Michelangelo banged his hammer on the statue's knee and exclaimed: " Why don't you talk to me? ". Also, the Moses statue is like the real thing. However, the story will be nothing to say, if the statue of Moses does not own a pair of horns .
Many painting historians have argued that Michelangelo misunderstood the Bible . There is a passage in the Bible: " It is difficult for the Jews to admire the face of Moses when he descended at Mount Sinai with a stone tabletop." The Hebrew word " karnayim " appears to have been misunderstood as " horn " when translated into Italian and so the Moses statue has a beautiful pair of horns, unrelated.

5. The painting "A Bar at the Folies-Bergere" by Édouard Manet
The painting " A Bar at the Folies-Bergere " by Édouard Manet on the Courtauld Gallery in London has been discussed a lot. The bar girl in Manet's picture did not look directly at the viewer but looked with a sad, tired face .She was unfamiliar with the surrounding scenery full of details, trying to ignore the sleazy customers, including a sinister and confusing man in the mirror.Work is a string of unnamed things, dangerous gender relations and the magnificent city of Paris is like an empty nightclub in Manet's view at the time.Because of that, all of those things show up in the face of the young girl.
If you look in the mirror, you can immediately see the reflection is not true : the bottles on the counter are placed in different positions and the waiter seems to be looking in a different direction. In the painting, there is a young woman standing in front of a large mirror, because we see the back reflected, but this reflection does not completely reflect the normal angle and this back is facing a the man standing before her.
The viewer seemed to stand opposite her face selling alcohol outside the counter, looking at what reflected through a mirror. However, when you look closely, you can ask yourself, where do you see the picture standing? Is the position of the man in the upper right corner outside the counter in front of the mirror of the painting? And who is the man in the painting? That is the painter Édouard Manet.
4. Rembrandt's 'Night watch - Night patrol'

Others claim that this glove is the left glove, and the captain holds it with the ring finger while the thumb is pointing towards the viewer.
3. 'The Supper at Emmaus' by Caravaggio
Viewers who pay close attention can observe that the basket of fruits is " clinging " on the edge of the table but does not fall, challenging the laws of physics.

All these mistakes are deliberate: apples, grapes as well as fish balls of fruit baskets, carrying Christian symbols and evangelical documents.
