The Statue of David by Michelangelo at the Galleria dell'Accademia in Florence, Italy.

It was on this date in 1503 that Michelangelo began working on the Statue of David. And it was on this date in 1922 that the Straw Hat Riot began in New York City. The riot spread due to men disobeying the September 15th unofficial deadline to wear straw hats in public.
