The phrase “beauty lies in the eyes of beholder” points to the fact that different people find different sights as pleasing or beautiful. Put another way, the beauty of same object or sight may be assessed differently by different person. Thus a thing is beautiful not because of some intrinsic physical feature it possesses by because of the the likes and preferences of the person viewing the object. Thus the beauty is something that exists in the mind of the person seeing it. Thus the word eyes has been used here figuratively to represent the mind and feelings of the person seeing – the beholder. It is our emotions that help us to understand the world in a different way than others. My mood can play a major role in understanding the painting because when I am in a good mood I would see the colors in a cheerful way while I am in a bad mood I would see them as outrageous thing which will somehow effect my opinion in the paining .In conclusion my feelings and my mood can greatly effect my opinion about the painting.Our culture can play a great role in our understanding of the painting and in the way we see this painting, for example I am a girl who lives in a preservative family where my parents have taught me not to look at nude painting. So when I look at a nude painting I would find it very interesting no matter how bad the artist was because I have never seen a naked body before, so for me the idea of such a painting draws my attention to the max, so my judgment on the painting would differ from the judgment of others.
“Beauty is only skin deep” and “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” can be very controversial quotes to some people. Those quotes are all based on how they are viewed by other people. You may not believe in them but other might believe strongly in them. First, “Beauty is only skin deep” all depends on what type of person you are. Both quotes rate directly to each other but let’s pull them apart separately. I think that ‘Beauty is only skin deep’ is expressed in many ways by people. If you are not one of those beautiful people in this world then to some people you mean nothing. When you look around a normal school you see clicks right? Well that’s what I am talking about. You see the people who express them selves by wearing darker clothes, and the people who always wear the trendy and instyle clothes. Sometimes you get jealous and say mean things because either you wished you looked like them or you want the things they have. But we were all created differently. You have to like yourself first for anyone else to like you. Relating to ‘Beauty is only skin deep’ means that people only look at what’s inside that counts. Some people believe at love at first sight…what is all that about? That means they like the person just from seeing them. So many people in this world can relate. People judge people. You look around and think by the clothes or hairstyle this girl wears that she can either not afford them or chooses to be that way. So you think she is poor. Doesn’t she deserve your attention too ?? I think that beauty is over rated. People need to look at your mind, your intelligence.
What one person finds as enjoyable, doesn’t necessarily appeal to someone else. Such as it is with people, and those we like to be with. Certain traits that people have, appeal to others in varying ways. What one person sees as good in someone, somebody else may not even be bothered to give the time of day to. The perception of what is beautiful is purely subjective. While there are things which are universally accepted as beautiful, their appeal to the individual as beautiful varies from person to person. For example, a Madagascar hissing beetle may be revolting to one person, but a thing of incredible beauty to another. But while it is pretty much an accepted standard that there is no ugliness in anything natural the appeal of certain things in nature will vary from person to person. It means that you are beautiful in the eyes of others in different ways…Like I could look at a slum area and see beauty because they truly care for one another while another person would look at it as disgusting…Do you see now ??
