Master Mateo and his workshop. Ca. 1200. Granite

Like its partner, the figure of King Solomon, the statue of King David was part of the sculptural ensemble on the façade of the Portico of Glory, and both were transferred in the seventeenth century to the parapet of the lodge that completes the baroque staircase of the Obradoiro. In 2016 and after its restoration, the two pieces were on display at the Museum, preserved from the exposure to outdoor conditions.
David appears crowned and seated in a scissor chair with lion heads at the ends. He plays a rotta with his right hand while adjusting its tension with the tuning key of his left hand.
