When you travel in Iran you cannot miss some of those lovely Iranian paintings picturing beautiful girls and woman on them. One of the things that caught my eye when looking at those paintings was that women are quite often pictured with their eyebrows that are widened and painted until they appear to meet. I thought it was an artistic vision of the painter rather than a reality, till I started to notice some of the Iranian girls with same physical features. My Iranian friend has mentioned afterward that it used be a fashion style at some point in Iranian history and if the eyebrow didn't physically grow together, ladies used to paint it that way.
