Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi [Saviour of the World] is showing in Hong Kong for four days, starting tomorrow. The artwork is travelling the globe ahead of its auction at Christie’s in New York, on 15 November, where it is expected to fetch around US$100 million.
The piece, only confirmed as an authentic da Vinci work as recently as 2011, was created around the same time as the Mona Lisa. Christie’s have described Salvator Mundi as ‘the biggest discovery of the 21st century’. Before stops in San Francisco and London, the artwork is here in Hong Kong for four days for lucky art lovers to admire.
On show at Christie’s in Central, the artwork is open to public viewing for the following hours:
Friday – 1pm-5.30pm
Saturday – 10.30am-5:30pm
Sunday – 10.30am-2.30pm, 4.30pm-5.30pm

Undoubtedly the finest piece of art to visit the city all year, Hongkonger’s shouldn’t miss this rare opportunity to see one of Leonardo’s works here in our very own SAR.
