A man disguised as an elderly woman decided the best way to get the public’s attention was to try and de-face the world’s most popular painting.

On Sunday, the man wearing a black wig and lipstick, smeared cake all over the glass case protecting Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Mona Lisa at the Louvre Museum in Paris.

As one witness describes, the man “jumped out of a wheelchair and attempted to smash the bulletproof glass of the Mona Lisa” before he smearing it with the sweet confection before being tackled by security.

Some are saying the stunt was a form of protest against climate change, with the 36-year-old culprit allegedly shouting, “think about the Earth” during the ordeal.

According to authorities, the man was arrested and sent for a psychiatric evaluation.
