Reassembled beadnet dress, 2323-2150 BC Egypt, MFA Boston
Another reassembled dress, assumably with a similar story to the last one. Legend has it that these were worn by the female rowers who sailed down the Nile with the pharaoh, who was supposedly delighted by having his own little peepshow. This is probably just a legend.
