    picture of health

    Whey does "picture of health" mean "extremely healthy"? Does "picture" mean "some role model"?

    23)When we're young, we're used to seeing our parents as the picture of health....

    Re: picture of health

    You know how some entries in a dictionary have a little picture to illustrate the word?

    That's the idea. It's the "picture" you imagine when someone says "health."
