    This is beautiful and mesmerizing indeed. However, I’m sadden to see that the women along my line of western heritage are not represented (or were not included/selected) in the 500 years summary of women’s portraits. Lacking a little color (Native Indian, Afro American, Latin, Asian, Italian etc) in my opinion.
