Replica of Michelangelo's David has penis cut off

A reproduction of Italian renaissance artist Michelangelo's masterpiece, "David," has been attacked by a group who cut off its penis, daily Hürriyet has reported.

The statue, a reproduction by renowned German sculptor Hans Peter Feldmann in the Kant park of the western German city of Duisburg, has been taken to an atelier for restoration following the attack.

David is a 5.17-meter marble statue of a standing male nude, representing the Biblical hero David. The original David, which was created between 1501-1504, is exhibited in Academy of Fine Arts in Florence.
