    For @grayg8rstevo ~ have you seen this? Akiane is now 23 years old. She painted the 'Prince of Peace' when she was 8 years. An extraordinary life blessed with amazing talent and success for one so young, but there are disturbing aspects to this story.




    Akiane - Wikipedia

    The Prince of Peace is one of Akiane's favorite painting of hers.[13] At the young age of eight, a mysterious carpenter was introduced to her in the hope that his facial features would inspire Akiane. Thinking that he closely resembled one of her recurrent memories of Jesus from her dreams and visions, she thought it was the perfect moment to start the painting. After 40 long hours of intensive painting, she completed the Prince of Peace. The original painting was then shipped to her agent for supposedly an exhibition, but he stole it and sold it for a low price instead. As of 2018, the original painting is said to be locked in a bank vault, the current owner refusing to return the painting. [14] [15] [16]

    It says in reference 14 that it was retrieved a couple of months ago.

    There is a picture of it, and prints of various sizes for sale

    "Retrieved" is wiki lingo for gathering information published on another site and adding to subject page. Everything I've read about her original Jesus portrait reports it is still being held in a vault with the owner refusing to display it or sell it.

    Akiane apparently somehow retained the rights to the original image as she freely sells prints of the portrait without challenge from the current owner.
