Mona Lisa - Five centuries of  Artistic Appropriation
The presence that rose thus so strangely beside the waters, is expressive of what in the ways of a thousand years men had come to desire... She is older than the rocks among which she sits; like the vampire, she has been dead many times, and learned the secrets of the grave; and has been a diver in deep seas, and keeps their fallen day about her;...and all this has been to her but as the sound of lyres and flutes, and lives only in the delicacy with which it has moulded the changing lineaments, and tinged the eyelids and the hands. “("The Renaissance", Walter Pater οn the Mona Liza)
