Always wanted to see the statue of David? Well, now it’s easy, but we’re not talking about the revered Michelangelo version. To celebrate the launch of the new season of his bodywear (as in underwear) collection for H & M, 10-foot tall metallic statues of soccer superstar David Beckham have appeared in six New York locations and in Los Angeles and San Francisco as well.

The larger than life likenesses are available for viewing here at the South Street Seaport, in the Flatiron district at Fifth Avenue and 23rd and the three Manhattan H & M stores.

And prudish types fear not. Unlike the original statue of David, Beckham is, naturally, wearing briefs.
