Peplos Kore

We just learned about the ancient greek statue the Sphinx of Naxos.

Another ancient greek statue is called Peplose Kore.

Peplos is a type of clothing, kind of like a robe, and kore means a young girl.

When it was first made it was painted, but the paint has all worn off.
Some people have made other statues and painted them how they think the Peplos Kore was painted.
