A very good presentation of an intriguing group of people. It makes me reflect about what people define as beautiful. The notion of a man paying such attention to how "beautiful" he looks and what facial expressions best attract the attention of women is quite new, especially in light of the billions of dollars women spend on beauty products in the West.
Furthermore, it makes one wonder about whether their notion of beauty was a precursor or linked somehow to pre-Islamic
and post-Classical people's view of themselves as beautiful compared to sub-Saharan people.
This is a topic I think of as I read about Iranian/Arabs' description of people of African origin living among them.
