NEW YORK, NY, January 20, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Salvator Mundi, with two full length feature documentaries, over half a dozen books and countless articles, was by far the most written about single work of art in 2021. Now, just as some may wonder if anything else can be added to the story of the world's most expensive work of art, a newly released series of NFTs is poised to reset the Salvator Mundi identity, crossing it to the digital metaverse.
Real Salvator Mundi, the registered trademark and brand extension of the world's most expensive work of art, announces the launch of a series of digital artworks aimed at creating a new conceptual and interpreted work designed specifically for the crypto community. Aptly titled "Salvator Munki", each NFT is created from a complex combination of proprietary algorithmic calculations into a unique historically significant digital image in the blockchain metaverse.

As RS Mundi states: "Art imitates life or life imitates art, Salvator Munki NFTs are designed to be a perfect transition between the physical world and the digital metaverse. Each Salvator Munki NFT is poised to follow a trajectory of the Salvator Mundi painting and a perfect addition for today's art collectors - young and old.
