Arabic word for beauty, be it literal or figurative

The Arabic word of the week finds meaning in the eye of the beholder.

Jamal is Arabic for beauty, and much like what it tries to signify, the word shifts between the literal and the figurative, adapting to taste and emotion, and escaping any unifying measure or absolute definition.
