“Salvator Mundi” by Albrecht Dürer is an unfinished painting showing Christ as Savior of the World, who raises his right hand in blessing and his left holds a crystal orb representing the earth. Dürer began this work before he departed for Italy in 1505 and only completed the painting of the richly coloured drapery.  The unfinished picture of the face and hands show Dürer’s detailed preparatory drawings. This painting shows Dürer’s extensive and meticulous drawing skills.
