Lady of Elche in Lliria is carved from limestone which still bears traces of paint. This side view shows the wheel-like adornments which may have been constructed of basketry or of metal. This sculpture shows that the Spanish mantilla goes back some 24 centuries. A similar peaked headdress topped with a veil was worn in Tunisia into modern times. The jewelry, too, has Phoenician and Carthaginian analogues.
