At the time of the spectacular sale price of Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi, Bottenberg decided to give it the correct send-up by adding two identical copies to the found statuette of a poor artist hawking his goods on the street. The idea of the newly discovered Leonardo actually being sold by the dozen, by a street vendor, is a tongue-in-cheek comment on the high end of the art business.
