Description Photo of installation at the Oriental Institute Museum

The Jericho dress (thob) was extremely long, usually twice or three times the height of the wearer. The excess fabric was gathered up and secured by a belt. The sleeves are so large that they could be thrown over the head as a veil, or they could be used to carry objects. The amount of fabric used for the dress was not a function of modesty, but rather of status, for the dress exhibited the wealth of the wearer. The extra fabric also protected the wearer from heat during the day and from cold at night. This example has broad blue fabric insets and blue trim around the hem. The front is decorated with simple fuchsia stitching. A metal button cast with a cross and the word “Jerusalem” indicates that the wearer of this garment might have been Christian.

The silver necklace with a lunar crescent is ornamented with a single Maria Theresa coin.

Dress: cotton, OIM A35636A
