The Birth of Venus or Have You Twins?

We were in Cava dei Tirreni yesterday, and I had to wait for my husband in the car. It's too expensive to pay every stop you have to do, so we make this way: one remains in the car and the other goes to do what is necessary. This time was I waiting for him.

It was a splendid day, yesterday, so much sun we did not see since autumn. I did not see police nearby and went out from the car that was in the shadow. On the sun, I began to walk here and there. Two women stoped there, too. They spoke about something. After that, one of them come to me and said me: I looked at you when you waked here. Do you know that you are very very similar to a main character of one famous picture? Unfortunatelly, I can't remember the name of the picture but it's very very famous, you know.
-I know that picture, I answered. It's The Birth of Venus.
-Oh yes!!! You are right! The Birth of Venus!
-The life is strange, my lady, everything repeats always...

Well, there were many times in my life, specially when I was young, that different persons said me, I'm similar to the woman on the picture (even if I thought always, I was more beautiful from all points of view).

I read the words of Ecclesiastes that I like very much:
The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after. (Source)
What I want to say: the picture waspainted circa 1487. 400 years later the nature created a person similar to the girl on the picture (me). It seems that the Nature has not so many varieties and repeats itself from time to time.

Do you know other similar examples?
