    In 2017, Leonardo da Vinci’s small oil painting the Salvator Mundi was sold at auction. In the words of its discoverer, the image of Christ as savior of the world is “the rarest thing on the planet.” Its $450 million sale price also makes it the world’s most expensive painting. For two centuries, art dealers had searched in vain for the Holy Grail of art history: a portrait of Christ as the Salvator Mundi by Leonardo da Vinci. Many similar paintings of greatly varying quality had been executed by Leonardo’s assistants in the early 16th century.

    When making plans for a home decorating project, it is important to sit down and write down your ideas and goals. Without a plan, the experience may become confusing and frustrating. There are many details to work out when planning to decorate your home such as theme, materials, and intentions for the space being decorated. It is pointless to get up one morning thinking, “I'll decorate my dining room today.” It would be a nice thought, but without previous planning, doubtfully the project would amount to much. Failing to plan is planning to fail.

    For over half a century, scholars have labored to show that C. S. Lewis' famed but apparently disorganized Chronicles of Narnia have an underlying symbolic coherence, pointing to such possible unifying themes as the seven sacraments, the seven deadly sins, and the seven books of Spenser's Faerie Queene. None of these explanations has won general acceptance, and the structure of Narnia's symbolism has remained a mystery.
