A Japanese Tourist Discovers Her “Ancestor” on a Painting and the Internet Goes Wild for the Uncanny Resemblance
    During a school trip,Twitter user Yuki took a selfie in front of a portrait, which showcased her resemblance to a 'Mongolian princess', and shared it on the social media site.
    The post from this Japanese student, who had less than 1,000 followers, was a surprise hit and has been retweeted around 50,000 times since it was posted on December 10.
    When she went to the exhibition “Elegant Gathering of the Princess: The Culture of Appreciating and Collecting Art at the Mongol Yuan Court,” she noticed a familiar face.It was a Mongolian princess from the Yuan Dynasty who bore a striking resemblance to the girl.

    Yuki, however, is not the only person to resemble a famous Chinese person and similar photographs also resurfaced on Chinese social media site Weibo.
    According to Huanqiu,many were of ordinary people posing next to historical paintings or statues but some also featured Chinese Olympic athletes according to Huanqiu.





    Nevertheless,I,who haven’t found my “ancestor” until now, am not as fortunate as them.It’s a sad story for me.
