Explained: Mona Lisa — widely loved, frequently attacked

A deranged young male visitor disguised as an old lady in a wheelchair threw a piece of cake at Leonardo Da Vicini’s Mona Lisa painting at Paris’ Louvre Museum

The boy stood up from his chair and acted out his rage at what is presumable the most famous work of art, which dates back to 1517. The attack was defined as “vandalism.” However, since the painting is protected by bullet-proof glass, the creamy product never reached its target.

But video footage from tourists visiting the exhibition went viral. Louvre museum staff was quick to clean the area, as dozens of onlookers recorded the moment with their cell phones, separated from the painting by a black protective tape.
