Question Description

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, men have named you.
You’re so like the lady with the mystic smile.
Is it only ‘cause you’re lonely they have blamed you?
For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile?
Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa?
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart?
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
They just lie there and they die there.
Are you warm, are you real, Mona Lisa?
Or just a cold and lonely, lovely work of art?

- Nat King Cole

composition style, attention to detail and deployment of a well-defined technique made it a
unique masterpiece that has inspired pop-culture for many generations. The fascination with the
painting, however, is primarily about the enigmatic smile of the subject, speculation has been
plenty with regards to what exactly is behind the smile as well as questions regarding the identity
