A 500-year-old painting of Christ believed to be the work of Leonardo da Vinci is heading to the Louvre Abu Dhabi, the museum said in a Twitter post.
The newly-opened museum made the announcement on Twitter, without specifying whether it had bought the painting at auction this month.

Media reports say it was purchased by a Saudi prince.
The work – known as Salvator Mundi (Saviour of the World) – was sold in New York for a record $450m.
It was the highest auction price for any work of art.
The unidentified buyer was involved in a bidding contest, via telephone, that lasted nearly 20 minutes.
