A person seemingly disguised as an previous lady in a wheelchair has staged an assault on the Mona Lisa.
Video shared on-line reveals the world’s most well-known art work with what witnesses recommended was cake smeared throughout the glass case defending it.
Bystanders mentioned a person “dressed as an previous woman” jumped out of a wheelchair on the Louvre in Paris earlier than making an attempt to smash the protecting glass in entrance of the Leonardo da Vinci portray.
One witness mentioned the person then proceeded to “smear cake on the glass and throw roses in every single place earlier than being tackled by safety”.
Separate footage reveals the person suspected of being accountable telling bystanders in French: “Consider the planet… there are people who find themselves destroying the planet, take into consideration that … That is why I did it.”
The person, apparently carrying lipstick and a wig, is then escorted away by safety. It was unclear what motion, if any, the person now faces.
It isn’t thought that the portray, thought-about an archetypal masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance, was broken.
The Louvre has been contacted for remark.
