Leonardo da Vinci - Salvator Mundi

Leonardo da Vinci - Salvator Mundi 
(Latin for “Savior of the World”)
The incredible story of how the last known work
of Leonardo da Vinci was almost lost forever

When Dianne Dwyer Modestini began chipping away at a painted-over
and murkily varnished image of Jesus Christ more than a decade ago, little did she know
she was restoring the last Leonardo da Vinci work known to the world.
This New York auction house Christie’s, announced that Salvator Mundi (Latin for “Savior of the World”) will be offered for an estimated $100 million next month. The painting is owned by Russian  investor Dmitry Rybolovlev, whose estimated net worth is $7.4 billion and has been mired in many controversies—in the art world and beyond.
