The Mona Lisa



With an enigmatic smile and facial gesture, Da Vinci's Mona Lisa has always called the attention and admiration of art critics and painters alike.  What does this painting have that many other paintings lack?  What is the true source of this mysterious attraction?  How come this painting has remained in the admiration of many people throughout centuries, while other artworks get completely forgotten not long after being created?

Da Vinci's Mona Lisa (or Gioconda) reminds us the role played by the Eternal Universal Feminine Principle in this process of choice in the Way that leads towards the State of Complete Enlightenment.
