    A woman from Nazareth with the traditional seven skirts.

    It is part of the Nazarene tradition the use of seven skirts by their women. The explanation is not consensual, but it is closely linked to the task: the Nazarenes had a habit of waiting for their husbands and sons, from the return of fishing, on the beach, sitting on the beach, spending hours there in their wake. They used the various skirts to cover themselves, the top ones to protect the head and shoulders of the sea and the others to cover the legs
