A 517-Year-Old Leonardo Da Vinci’s Portrait Of Christ gets bough for 162billion Naira.

Portrait of Christ

Leonardo da Vinci’s long lost portrait of Christ ‘Salvator Mundi’ has been sold for a record smashing $450.3 million (about N162billion) 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. 📸: Instablog9ja

But wait a minute, is this portrait going to be hung the same way as every other portrait? Is there a special thing that it does that others don’t? Is that the actually face if Christ on it? What will happen to the buyer afterwards? Will he be in some kind of witness protection, or will it be collected by the government and placed in the museum with strong security guards?

These are the questions that I have because most times, when things related to Christ are mentioned, then a lot of people become very vulnerable and gullible. Can they even differentiate the fact that it is just an Art work and not Christ himself? It is the same material every other thing was made with.

Well I am honestly excited that something related to Christ got that much attention, but I can’t buy it for myself even if I have the money, which I don’t at this point. Maybe money changes people’s thoughts and mindset. I can’t wait to see how.
