Da Vinci Continues to Thrive

27,000 people waited in line in Hong Kong, New York, San Francisco and London to see it before the auction at Christie’s Auction House.

Through online phone bidding from some deep pockets, the competition came to a quick finality.

But who was the winner?

Some say Salvator Mundi is the counter painting to the Mona Lisa.

Opinions have weighed in…
