A Twitter user wrote that while viewing the Mona Lisa on Sunday afternoon, a man in a wig got out of a wheelchair and threw a cream cake at the picture. Photos posted to Twitter and Instagram showed a man, apparently a warden at the Louvre, removing the cream from the painting’s protective pane. A photo or video of the actual cake throw did not initially appear on the Internet.

In a video posted by the Twitter user, the man dressed in white can be seen standing next to his wheelchair and surrounded by museum security personnel is taken away. Apparently the man wanted his sensational action to be understood as a call for environmental protection.

In December 1956, a Bolivian threw a stone at the Mona Lisa, damaging the left side of the painting. As a consequence, the more than 500-year-old picture was protected with safety glass. In 2005, the protective measures for the “Mona Lisa” were increased again. Since then, the picture has been behind bulletproof glass in a transparent box that ensures ideal temperature and humidity. Every year the painting attracts millions of visitors from all over the world.
