London-based street artist Slinkachu (previously posted here), master manipulator of miniature people for the Little People Project, recently returned from Paris where he helped promote ReAct Paris, “a conference organised by the European Parliament to tackle the problems of unemployment in Europe, particularly youth unemployment, which in some parts of Europe stand close to a miserable 30%.”

Slinkachu created an awesome series of wonderfully tiny street art installations throughout the city involving miniature workers doing their respective jobs while hidden in plain sight. Their presence was meant to ask the question: "Why is it so hard to find a job?"

The piece you see here involves an itty-bitty museum guard protecting a teeny-weeny Mona Lisa. It was thoughtfully positioned overlooking The Louvre Museum.
