Art restorers Wednesday glued back the toe of Michelangelo's statue of David, which was damaged in a hammer attack last month, museum officials said.

The toe itself had previously been put back together from four fragments found after the attack by a self-confessed failed artist, Pietro Cannata, who said the statue had harmful effects because it was "too beautiful."Several tourists picked up and pocketed the fragments after the attack on the 13-foot-tall statue. They were stopped by guards and the pieces were recovered.
