This reproduction of Leonardo Da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi" (in English: Savior of the World) shows Christ as King holding a crystalline orb, representing the heavens and the earth, with His hand held up in benediction.
The original was painted around 1500, likely for King Louis XII of France. Until 2005 this was assumed to be just another one of many copies of the lost original due to damages resulting from poor restoration attempts and overpainting. After thorough investigations, and authentifications by many different scholars, this was determined to be a legitimate Da Vinci painting. So, the painting was restored and in 2017 it was purchased for $450.3 million by the Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and tourism, making it the most expensive painting ever sold to date. Eventually, it will be opened to the public in the Louvre Abu Dhabi.
