Art fans at the Lourve Museum in Paris were left stunned after an “old woman” jumped out of her wheelchair to smear cake over the Mona Lisa painting. Images and videos of the famous painting stained with cake cream went viral on social media on Sunday.
Marca reported that a man disguised as an elderly woman in a wheelchair jumped up and threw cake on the iconic painting, shocking onlookers. He reportedly attempted to break through the bulletproof glass that protects Leonardo da Vinci’s work in the Louvre Museum.
According to eyewitnesses, the perpetrator was a man in a wheelchair who wore a wig. He suddenly stood up and approached the painting. At first, he tried to destroy the display case. When that didn’t work, he threw the cake onto the canvas and spread it over the glass panel. He also sprinkled roses before he was knocked to the ground by security.
