The accident took place at the Taipei gallery which is currently exhibiting the Face of Leonardo: Images of a Genius show. Organisers of the exhibition are not demanding payment for the damage from the boy's family. Exhibition organisers told Focus Taiwan news that the painting was part of a private collection and was insured.

Chief restorer Tsai Shun-Jen, said: "When we start working on the painting's restoration, the priority is to strengthen its structure, not retouching the paint on the damaged area.''
