LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville interpretation of an arts-world classic is undergoing restoration with a goal of completion ahead of Derby.

A double-sized golden replica of Michelangelo's David was brought from Istanbul to Kentucky for the 21c Museum Hotel in 2011, before making a pit stop in the port of New York.
