LIORA BELFORD REMEMbers the distressing moment that inspired her to put together an art show on notions of female beauty.

“I asked my daughter, who is three-anda- half years old, to put on her beautiful dress and she turned to me and said: ‘Beautiful is important, isn’t it?’ ” What troubled Belford, an art curator at Jaffa’s ST-ART gallery, was how Nola, her blue-eyed, blonde-haired daughter, who frequently attracts compliments about her looks, was being influenced by the emphasis people place on physical appearance.
