Ancient Egypt


Some 3 1/2 thousand years ago in ancient Egypt, this,
part of an ivory chest, was decorated with a carved relief
of a garden promenade of Tut-anch-Amun an his wife Anch-es-Amun.

We see a unique and refined fashion, delicate and fastidious an even, slim female body.

The ladies were shaved entirely! (Sometimes even their heads!)
And to emphasise this, their pleated skirts were worn wide open in front!





2. Anch-es-Amun, Wife of Tutanchamun
