Strong and beautiful women have always been the subject of poets, movie directors and painters. They have left a lasting mark on mankind's memory. In an historical study of women depicted in art the following conclusion is given: Women always paint women. This is psychologically interesting.

History shows that often beauty was a woman's only chance to find a place in society. She had to serve the ideal of beauty of her time. But beauty is not just a snapshot of a moment or an accident of adolescence. It is a life long work to acquire and maintain through education, spirit, discipline and perfection. We know the achievements and tragedies experienced by these figures. These experiences make them more alluring than a queen, distinguished only by her birth. Some may have had the advantage of an attractive or intriguing appearance. However, what ultimately impresses us is their astounding performance.
