How does one define physical beauty? Artists, poets, photographers, authors and directors are constantly trying to capture it. Modeling agents, when asked to define it, were unable to answer - after some thought, their final conclusion was "you know it when you see it." Beauty, it seems, is an experience more than an object. This thesis discusses the origins and perceptions of beauty from an interdisciplinary perspective. Discussed are its characteristics, definitions, standards and judgments and why beauty matters.
