Leonardo da Vinci's long lost portrait of Christ 'Salvator Mundi' has sold for a record smashing $450.3 million on Wednesday at Christie's in New York more than double the old mark for any work of art at auction.


The painting, which once sold for just $60 at auction, fetched more than four times over the Christie's pre-sale estimate of about $100 million.


'Salvator Mundi', Italian for 'Savior of the World' was purchased by an unidentified buyer bidding via telephone after a protracted bidding war that stretched to nearly 20 minutes at the New York auction house.


Salvator Mundi, an ethereal portrait of Jesus Christ by Leonardo da Vinci which dates to about 1500, has gone under the auctioneers hammer.

No hating please.

When your economy is good, and you know the worth, and also have the money, then buy it.

There's definitely a whole lot more to dat painting dan jus d picture if not how would anyone bid almost half a billion dollars for a painting. In my mind I'm already picturing Illuminati trying to use Robert Langdon to find d code hidden in d painting

My uncle would have used thugs or charm to silence other buyers. Then he would have gotten it for free.

He bought a house at Victoria island lagos for just 150 thousand Naira only as against the original 50 million. How he did it still remains a puzzle to me

U know its still too early to start with ur lies, wait till d sun comes up... They're actually getting boring

Am sure it's one Japanese man that has bought it.

He will keep it in his room and be looking at it.

Anyway he knows why he wants the picture so bad and paid whatever it cost.


Every man with his desires

Leonardo da Vinci one of the greatest artist ever. Even in death your work is still making you proudly. Together with Michelangelo you guys set the pace when it comes to art and sculpture
