Emphasis is put on the Ancient Greek costume of Doric and Ionic style, as well as the variety of drapery – a basic element of Ancient Greek fashion. The costumes are accompanied by painted decorations and the appropriate hair styles, shoes and jewellery, with a brief description of the period they refer to for better understanding the exhibited works.
