Italian cops recover stolen da Vinci replica no one knew was missing

An important copy of  Leonardo da Vinci’s famous “Salvator Mundi”  painting is back in the hands of an Italian museum after being stolen at some point in the last year. No one knew it was missing.

Police found the copy, which shows Jesus with his right hand raised in a blessing and the left holding a crystal orb, in an apartment in Naples, according to CNN. Painted in the 1510s, possibly by one of da Vinci’s students, the artwork replicates the most expensive painting in the world which has not been seen in public since a $450.3 million sale in 2017 (possibly to a representative of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, CNN reported).
