The offering bearer wears a basic wraparound kalasiris dress and a strap that connects to the dress over her left shoulder. It is not known whether straps on ancient Egyptian dresses were designed as a part of the garment or were separate attachments for fashionable or utilitarian purposes. Ancient Egyptian illustrations typically identify women who wore this garment with a strap as servants, whereas artisans depicted men of all socioeconomic levels wearing the version for men.
