The Houston Museum attribues this mode not to Michelangelo
but to Niccolo Tribolo, Italian, (1500-1550) who
supposably made this after the Michelangelo's Day statue.
This model was last displayed July 20th, 2000 and is
now in storage at the Museum.
However, this model is part of the Von Praun collection.
It was sold at the 1938 Christies auction. It then became
part of the Percy Strauss Collection (buyer at Christies?)
in New York. Percy Strauss and his wife dontated the model to Houston Museum of
Fine Arts in ???.
