Which country’s police recently recovered the stolen copy of Salvator Mundi?

The 16th century copy of Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi (Latin for ‘Saviour of the World’) was recovered by Italian police after it was stolen from a museum in Naples. The artwork was likely painted by one of Da Vinci’s students based on the Renaissance master’s famed depiction of Christ with one hand raised in blessing and other holding a crystal orb. Around 20 other variants of this work are known to be made by students and followers of Leonardo.
