Role in episode

SpongeBob makes the statue by tapping the hammer and chisel once on a block of marble. Squidward, at first, thinks it is beautiful, but in order to maintain his self-perception of being the better artist, he criticizes it and puts his nose shape on it to preserve this perception.

Later, Monty P. Moneybags views the statue likes it, apart from the nose Squidward added. He tells Squidward that with it the artist can have fame, fortune, and anything they want, and Squidward says he made it. As they move it out of the room, the head falls off and turns into dust.


  • It is a parody of Michelangelo's statue David.
