Just when you think you’ve heard it all, something happens that makes a bizarre event even more bizarre.
I’m referring to the recent $450 Million purchase of a Da Vinci painting of Jesus, by a mysterious buyer.
If you’re not familiar with this story, read my prior posts (HERE) and (HERE).
The other day, the NY Times reported that a little-known Saudi prince who’s from a remote branch of the royal family, was the buyer.
Prince, Bader bin Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Farhan al-Saud, (Imagine what his business card looks like) has no history as a major art collector. And, oddly enough, there’s no publicly known source of his supposed great wealth.
So, where does an unknown prince (BbAbMbFaS) come up with $450 Million to buy a painting of a Prophet (Muslims believe Jesus was a prophet).
This record shattering sum paid risks offending what most Muslims believe about Jesus. Most Muslims — especially the clerics of Saudi Arabia — consider the artistic depiction of any of the prophets to be a form of sacrilege.
On a sarcastic note you might wonder; “Is he buying a painting of a Prophet for a profit?”
Seriously, think about this. You have an unknown Saudi prince spending almost half a billion dollars for an image of the infidels’ deity – Christ.
You can’t make this stuff up.
It’s like a “dirty-money” laundromat…And it begs the question: “Who’s hiding what from whom?”
You also have to wonder if other mega art sales are being used to launder money from secret activities.
It gets more bizarre.
Read, the painting is a FAKE. (HERE) (Note* the report is 18 pages long)
There’s waaayyyy more to this story than meets the eye.
