A 25-year-old Beijing woman produced a series of photos recreating images of her mother as a young woman. The gesture and striking resemblance between the women was so great that the photos ‘moved many netizens to tears’.
Yangtze Evening News originally posted the images after the daughter, surnamed Zhang, took photos striking poses in the same places her mother had when she was around the same age, CRI English reported.
She gave the photos to her mother as a New Year’s gift, telling her that she was “still the most beautiful woman.”
“We have similar smiles, and your youth is reborn in me,” she wrote to her mother. It’s so sweet it’s not even narcissistic really.
