Kore (girl) holding a bead as an offering Marble, made in Ionia. From Theangela, Karia, made about 525-500BC. In Archaic Greek art the successful treatment of drapery was important in female statues, whereas the sculptors of male figures worked towards the ideal nude. This Kore wears a short- sleeved chiton (tunic) belted under the breasts, the material of which is pulled into shallow folds by the girl's right hand. Over this she has a himation (cloak) that falls over her back and is pinned at the shoulders.
