Protestors have thrown soup on one of the most famous paintings in the world.

Two protestors hurled soup at the Mona Lisa, the famed painting by Leonardo Da Vinci. The artwork, which is at the Louvre Museum in Paris, was unharmed thanks to its protective bullet-proof glass, a security measure implemented after a 1950s acid attack.

The protestors, advocating for “healthy and sustainable food,” are linked to Riposte Alimentaire, a group known for such demonstrations.

Following the event, museum staff acted quickly, shielding the painting and evacuating the gallery to ensure the safety of both the artwork and the visitors.
