Woman with beaded garment (3rd mill. BC)Your model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
3D model of individual UE 343 (female, 24-32 years) and her beaded garment found (consolidated in situ) in the Large Chamber of the Montelirio tholos, mega-site of Valencina de la Concepción (Seville, Spain).
Those buried inside the monument (25 indiv.) — mostly women — died within a few decades or simultaneously in the 28th century BC. The tholos contained the largest known assemblage of beads ever discovered in Europe (c. 250,000), with very few (if any) parallels world-wide. They formed various garments of beaded clothing dressing six of the women, all young adults between 18-34 years old. Three of the garments appear to be short skirts, one a cloth covering the back, and two full-body tunics. In addition, there was an amazing array of highly sophisticated artefacts, in most cases made of exotic materials.
