About the Art

“Salvador Mundi” is a painting by Leonardo Da Vinci depicting Jesus Christ in a plastic wrap holding a crystal aquarium pot, highlighting the plastic crisis. Overuse and production of plastic have led to pollution of land and oceans, posing risks to aquatic life. Research shows microplastics are killing aquatic life. The painting suggests that the plastic crisis is a sin caused by greed, making it essential to avoid misuse and protect the environment. The painting, an adaptation of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Salvador Mundi, features Jesus Christ surrounded by plastic wrap and a crystal aquarium with aquatic animals suffering from the plastic crisis.
