How does the mind interpret Beauty? is there a mental guide on what should be perceived beautiful..and what shouldn't? there are instinctive trades embedded in us all, feeding our "system command HQ", and giving us orders to react, through a complicated series of chemical reactions, as we are exposed to Beauty; in sight, sound, and smell.
From the mysterious beauty of the Mona Lisa, to the not so mysterious non beauty of the Condaleeza, the two extremes..despite the phonetic similarities..makes you ponder with awe!
Beauty..is the Mirror to the Greatness of the Creator, a Beautiful face bears the invisible signature of the Greatest Artist, it carries the tenderness of a drop of dew lying on a new born rose at dawn..in a warm spring morning.
In Andalusia, Arabs grew gardens with flowing streams, pools and fountains, built monuments, palaces, schools and houses of worship, and decorated them with poetry, and verses from the Qur'an..combining the ultimate, divine, timeless beauty, with that of the mundane, earthly..and the temporary.
One Thousand years later..those monuments remain standing, witness to the greatness of their creators.
Cordoba..a distant dream of Beauty.
