This is the Afghan Woman that was made famous with her "Electric" eys on the cover of Nat Geographic.

Check out the current pics. Looks like she's suffered tremendous hardships...the eyes are the window to the soul.

I think she was already and orphan when they took that pic. I'm sure afghanistan is not a fun place to be an orphan.

The eyes truly are the windows to the skull. I remain, as ever, impressed by the human capacity to equate beauty with importance, depth, and even, dangerously so, goodness.

thats amazing that they found her! Indeed that photo of her so young and with those incredible green eyes.. incredible impression.

I also remember seeing that in Iran. Once while visiting Persepolis when I was a kid I saw all these veiled school girls on a school trip and as they would look at us tourists out of curiosity, there would be a pair of emerald or aquamarine eyes that would catch you from 100 meters away every now and then. All in black veils (shadors) and wham... green eyes all of a sudden.
I'm having deja-vu and amnesia at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

No Matsu...that's incorrect. Whether the eyes be beautiful or treacherous..they still tell a story about that person. I don't think beauty really enters into the equation much honestly. However I will support your sentiments that beauty is on overused measuring stick....it's a shame that we Humans can be so fickle.
