Beauty is often defined as a subjective aesthetic feature of things which makes these things pleasurable to see. Such things as sunsets, landscapes, humans and beautiful works of art are all part of aesthetics, among the most important areas of art history. However, the word ‘beauty’ itself is sometimes difficult to define, even though most people seem to have a good knowledge of what beauty is. The word beauty has also been used in different contexts throughout history; for example, the words beauty, art, and virtue were used to describe the universal ideal of beauty during the Renaissance. During the late twentieth century, however, beauty started to lose its utilitarian definition, when photography gave humanity the ability to capture and preserve beauty forever.
Defining beauty is a difficult process, even for experts. Everyone has an opinion about beauty, and while some object strongly to beauty, many others appreciate beauty. For example, I personally believe that beauty is more subjective than objective. What someone else might consider to be beauty may actually be hate, while the same person might find something horrible and think it to be beauty. Therefore, while I don’t believe in the absolute definition of beauty, I do know that there are some things that are considered to be beauty, regardless of how people view them: perfect skin, flawless hair, strong shoulders, strong arms, the ability to dance elegantly, and so on.
In the arab world, beauty is a combination of different things: strength, symmetry, the absence of any deformation, the grace of a face, the masculinity of a body, the rationality of a mind. The concept of beauty in the arab world is closely tied to religion: all creatures, including humans, are considered to be made in the image of God. People who are strictly Islamic cannot be seen with bare legs or hands, for it is considered disrespectful to look at them while praying.
Beauty in the arab world varies greatly depending on what part of the body is being looked at, which can make it very difficult to classify. However, the most common trait amongst the many faces of beauty in the arab world is symmetry. For example, all men are considered to have symmetrical faces; however, women are not as lucky. A very noticeable feature of symmetrical faces is that the eye will follow the shape of the face, as if the face were a mirror. This is why it is so difficult to identify a person by just looking at their face. Symmetrical beauty is very rare, and the most common form of beauty in the arab world is the beauty of the face.
