The Louvre Museum in Paris has initiated a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the company it tasked with restoring the iconic 16th century Leonardo da Vinci portrait, the Mona Lisa. The paining has been in the possession of the Louvre since the early 20th century. In early 2008, the museum decided to combat the effects of age-related deterioration by having the painting restored. The results were unveiled earlier this week - collective gasps of shock soon reverberated throughout the world. "This is an absolute outrage" said one museum representative. The company involved in the restoration has declided to comment.
