450 million USD for a painting!

The painting(above) was sold in an auction held by Christies for a whopping 450.3 million dollars this week. That is an extraordinary price. This painting is named “Salvator Mundi” and it is known to be painted by Leonardo da Vinci. It has become the most expensive work of art ever sold.

The painting dated around 1500 shows Jesus holding a crystal orb in 1 hand and raised 2 fingers on the other suggesting benediction.
