Walking through an art gallery just yesterday, gazing at art from the past three hundred years, my impression of beauty is transformed; images of beauty are so unique from a cultural or social angle we could write a PHD. But, today we will just mention that while beauty is in the eye of the beholder, certain things remain constant throughout the ages: beautiful coiffed hair, a good complexion, healthy teeth, sparkling eyes, neck and shoulders, etc. and perhaps the turn of an ankle or leg that is glimpsed from beneath the edges of a skirt. The spirit or “inner life” of the sitter in these portraits was also evident reminding me that this too, is beauty: inner beauty.
These unique things about being female never change, so while the hairstyles or necklines or hems may go up or down, beauty is the spirit of being eternal from both the inside and outside. Bellissimo!
