Mona Lisa As The Sears Tower

a: Mona lisa ~
b: the sears tower

What: "If you think of architecture, the mona lisa is like the sears tower. Well crafted. Even artistic architects would respect it as a building. While you might like the Guggenheim more, the Sears Tower is still a masterpiece of architecture and engineering. That's why the Mona Lisa is so well respected."

Mona Lisa is like listening to Beethoven

a: Mona Lisa ~
b: listening to Beethoven

What: "For better or for worse, I tend to always correlate my understanding of visual art to how I conceptualize musical syntax. I made a comparison that looking at the Mona Lisa is like listening to Beethoven, while looking (or visiting) Nancy Holt's Sun Tunels (pictured here) is like listening to John Cage."

the Mona Lisa is like fine wine

a: the Mona Lisa ~
b: fine wine

What: "I think the Mona Lisa is like fine wine, not only does it get better with age, but it is the age of the viewer that recognizes and appreciates its fineness. It is amazing that the same expert hand that knows and renders raw flesh, muscle and bone with paper and pencil - can so delicately represent the most subtle of emotions with a brush. The sign of a truly gifted man a master. "

The Mona Lisa Is Like A Work Of Literature

a: The mona lisa ~
b: a work of literature

What: "The "Mona Lisa" is like a work of literature, and it must be analyzed and read for its various meanings. It is a theory that has been around for a long time, and other models have been suggested. Many people and researchers have studied the painting, but if you look at it upside down, the subject looks like a man more than a woman." This is an analysis of the supposed gender of the subject in this painting.

The Mona Lisa Is Like A Rockstar

a: The mona lisa ~
b: a rockstar

What: "Anyway, as my dad said, the Mona Lisa is like a rockstar: it is so famous and practically burnt into the back of every ones mind that it is somewhat anti-climactic." This is a travelogue about a trip to Louvre and an analysis of the trip to the museum and the walk to actually look at this painting.

The Mona Lisa is like a Gap hoodie

a: The Mona Lisa ~
b: a Gap hoodie

What: "I actually wasn't that impressed with the Mona Lisa. I did like this painting, however. It's Lotto's "La Femme Adultere." The Mona Lisa is like a Gap hoodie: nobody knows why they like it so much, they're just told they're supposed to."
