Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

“Art is making something out of nothing and selling it.” - Frank Zappa

On the right is a painting of butterfly and flowers, but if you move away from your screen, you may notice a beautiful girl instead.

This is a simple illustration of this saying: "We tend to perceive what we expect to perceive."

Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.” - Jonathan Swift

Hi Sam... this is great! Thanks for sharing it!

You are so right, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

And, there is more to this universe than what we see... :-)

Well said Jennifer, there is more to this universe than what we see!

There are many things that could not be seen but yet equally important.

Thanks for your valuable comments

Blessings to you!
