1. Mona Lisa. Great because it shows us exactly how ugly women were back then.

2. Last Supper. Great because it is the first ever accurate painting of a lads' night out, including Saint John (I think) seemingly giving the finger to Jesus over some argument. Theologians have considered it could be "This is MY body? **** that, pal! We all pitched in for this meal!"

3. Venus de Milo.
Great because who else would have thought of dispensing with the traditional notions of beauty and lopping her arms off? Also the first ever thalidomide sculpture.
