How are these sculptures of the same subject portrayed differently? (Statue of David by Bernini and David by Michelangelo)

—Bernini’s David invokes many emotions and the SCULPTURE ITSELF is extremely emotional and dramatic.
—Michelangelo’s David while slightly emotional displays MORE INTELLECTUAL aspects than emotional aspects. Bernini’s version seems to force its way into the viewer’s space while Michelangelo’s stands peacefully allowing the viewer to create distance if the viewer wants.
