Take a look at this David and Goliath sculpture. David was holding a knife in his right hand and a man’s head in his left. This is a character from the Biblical book of Samuel, described as a Philistine giant defeated in a single battle by the young David. This story shows that Saul was unfit to rule because Saul himself was supposed to fight for Israel. Scholars today believe that the original listing of the Goliath killer was Jair’s son Elhanan and that the author of the Deuteronomic history changed the text to attribute victory to a more famous figure, David. This David and Goliath sculpture are perfect for the public square.
The Philistines fled and were pursued by Israel “as far as Gath and the gates of Ekron”. David put goliath’s armor in his tent and took his head to Jerusalem, where Saul sent Abner to bring the boy to him. When the king asked whose son he was, David replied, “I am the son of your servant Jesse of Bethlehem…” If you are interested in this David and Goliath sculpture, welcome to contact Aongking.
