Critic Walter Pater, in his 1867 essay on Leonardo, expressed this view by describing the figure in the painting as a kind of mythic embodiment of eternal femininity, who is "older than the rocks among which she sits" and who "has been dead many times and learned the secrets of the grave.""Why is Mona Lisa Painting so famous?"There's a mystery surrounding the Mona Lisa, as to her identity.
