Notes

Summary:
Statue of a maiden. She takes her name from the heavy wool garment which she wears over her chiton (only the hem of the chiton is visible)The simplicity of her dress is particularly noteworthy since by this time (the early 520's) the many other korai dedicated on the Acropolis invariably wear the more elaborate Ionic himation. It has been suggested that she should be separated from the series of maidens who were dedications to Athena. her costume is deliberately old-fashioned and that her rigidity and four-squareness, in striking contrast to the developed plasticity and swelling contours of her body, can best be understood as an allusion to an archaic statue.
