Beauty in the Eyes of the Beholder

Beauty in the Eyes of the Beholder The search for beauty is fundamental in every man. The search is as relevant from the time of our cave dwelling parents to our generation today. It makes me wonder what was the concept of beauty among cave dwellers, when grooming was in its early stage, when shampoo and perfumes and jewelry were not invented yet.
