The ‘Mona Lisa’ has been smeared in a vandalism attempt.

Mona Lisa painting gets caked by a man disguised as an old woman

Despite the fact that the cake really crashed with the glass that covers Leonardo da Vinci’s work in the Louvre Museum in Paris, images of the Mona Lisa painting ruined with cake cream after a person stamped a cake on it went viral on Sunday.

The culprit, according to witness evidence, was a man in a wheelchair who wore a wig. He would have suddenly stood up and approached La Gioconda, tossed the cake at her, much to the amazement of the other guests.

The museum’s security personnel raced to evict the man from the room, but the rest of the visitors continued to shoot the event constantly. Because the artwork, which was painted between 1503 and 1519 by Leonardo da Vinci, was exposed and protected by safety glass, where the sweet’s remains were saturated, it was undamaged.

The incident did not develop, much to the surprise of many who were in the museum’s most inaccessible area at the time, which is often full with tourists. Louvre security workers hastened to remove the attacker from the building and wipe the glass, as seen in some of the videos uploaded on social media.

Not a first attempt to destroy the Mona Lisa painting:

Attempts have been attempted throughout history to deface, steal, or use the 77 by 53 centimeter canvas to raise awareness for various causes.

In the 1950s, a guy threw sulfuric acid at it, which damaged the artwork, and a Bolivian student attacked it with a stone. While attending an exhibition in Tokyo in 1974, a woman in a wheelchair splattered red paint on her wheelchair to convey her unhappiness with the lack of access ramps, albeit she never reached him.

In the summer of 2009, a Russian tourist hurled a cup of tea at him. The painting was stolen in 1911 and stayed missing for over three years.
