The official state portraits of former President Barack and his wife Michelle Obama have been unveiled at the world-renowned Smithsonian. Obama’s portrait was created by artist Kehinde Wiley for the National Portrait Gallery and shows the president sitting arms folded in a wooden chair with a scene of foliage behind him.

The former first lady, whose portrait was done by Amy Sherald, is shown in a long gown and relaxed pose but the imagery has left some scratching their heads — apparently many simply couldn’t really see the resemblance.

One social media user wrote, “It looks nothing like her. Who is that?” –While another tweeted “Who is that a portrait of? Surely not of Michelle Obama.”

Others appreciated the painting writing, “Simply beautiful. What a privilege and an honor for the former president and first lady.”
