Works of art in the collective unconscious

works of art in the collective unconscious

There are certain paintings and sculpture from art history, and recently from 20th century modernism like Auguste Rodin's The Thinker, Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali, Christina's World by Andrew Wyeth and a few others that seem to have a life of their own outside the world of art museums. Deeply rooted in the collective unconscious, these paintings and sculptures inspire parody, emulation, satire, and admiration.
