The winning bid for Leonardo da Vinci’s painting “Salvator Mundi” closed at a miraculous $450 million.

“Salvator Mundi”, which is Latin for “Savior of the World”, was projected to sell for about $100 million by Christie’s. The painting from around 1500 depicts Christ with a raised hand in blessing holding an orb.

The previous record amount fetched for a painting was in 2015 when Pablo Picasso’s painting “Women of Algiers (Version O)” sold for $179 million at Christie’s New York.
