The price of the painting has been recorded as the world most expensive artwork auctioned.

According to Christie’s, the Image of Jesus Christ “Salvator Mundi” or “Savior of the World,” which depicts Jesus Christ, more than doubled the previous record of $179.4 million paid for Pablo Picasso’s".

“The Women of Algiers (Version O)” in New York in 2015. Lost for years only to resurface at a regional auction in 2005, it is one of fewer than 20 Da Vinci paintings generally accepted as being from the Renaissance master’s own hand".

Christie's refused to unveil the buyer of the painting disclosed that bids came from “every part of the world”.

People like Bill Gates,Warren Buffet and Aliko Dangote can never spend that amount of money to buy a piece of painting...
It is the 'wannabes' that would quickly hijack this one.

Whoever that bought has been scammed. Available records points to the fact that Jesus was a man of colour.
