Mona Lisa smiles on after Russian teacup attack

August 13, 2009

A russian woman attacked Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa by throwing a teacup at the world's most famous painting but emerged unscathed due to it's bullet-proof glass protection.

The Louvre museum said that the woman took the cup from her bag and threw it over the heads of other people who were looking at the painting. The cup smashed on the bullet-proof glass which was slightly scratched.
The woman put up no resistance when museum guards apprehended her after the incident. She was handed over to police who said the woman "did not have all her mental faculties and has been transferred to the police psychiatric infirmary."
