Apparent Climate Protester Smears Cake on Mona Lisa

Linkedin Share

It may very well be the most famous painting of all time, and this week it was also the target of a crazed man who was apparently acting out in the name of “climate change”.

The Mona Lisa, painted by Leonardo DaVinci, is no stranger to trouble, having survived an acid attack some years ago.  That incident prompted bulletproof glass to be installed around the priceless art, and that glass may have protected the classic piece from a cake attack this week.

The Mona Lisa was left shaken but unharmed on Sunday when a visitor to the Louvre tried to smash the glass protecting the world’s most famous painting before smearing cream across its surface in an apparent climate-related publicity stunt.

The scene was a strange one, certainly.

The perpetrator was a man disguised as an old lady who jumped out of a wheelchair before attacking the glass.

“Maybe this is just nuts to me…,” posted the author of a video of the incident’s aftermath that shows a Louvre staffer cleaning the glass. “(He) then proceeds to smear cake on the glass, and throws roses everywhere before being tackled by security.”

The incident was soon making the rounds on social media.

 

The painting was unharmed in the attack, and the perpetrator was arrested before being taken to a mental health facility for examination.
