Glass Pyramid Entrance to the Louvre

The story of David and Goliath is the  classic tale of the contrast between the big and powerful against the smaller underdog. The top photo is of Daniele Da Volterra’s (aka Daniele Ricciarelli) painting The Combat of David and Goliath which is hanging in the Louvre in Paris. The second photo shows the contrast in architecture between the glass pyramid entrance which was added by the famous architect I.M. Pei in 1989 with the classic architecture of the Louvre Palace.
