Environmental activists in Paris poured soup on Leonardo da Vinci’s famous painting “La Gioconda” (“Mona Lisa”) in the Louvre Museum, which is protected by armored glass.


On Sunday morning, two environmental activists poured soup on the armored glass protecting the Mona Lisa in the Louvre, justifying their actions as a desire to promote, in particular, the right to healthy and sustainable food.


In May 2022, the Louvre said it had filed a lawsuit after a man threw a cake at the Mona Lisa. Previously, it was reported that a man in a wheelchair, a wig and a cap threw a piece of cake at the world-famous canvas. He accompanied his actions with calls to save the planet.
