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