"Curiously, depictions of women are absent in Nasca art until Phase 5 when they suddenly become a major theme. Since the representation of genitalia and breasts only appear on naked figurines in Nasca art, identification of the sex of an individual depends on secondary evidence such as clothing, hair style and occupation; in some cases it is impossible to ascertain the gender of an individual. Women wore their hair longer than men and are portrayed with long tresses reaching midway down the back while in the front the hair frames the face and falls part way down the breast on either side. The main item of clothing worn by females is an ankle length mantle which is most often shown wrapped around the body, sometimes fastened with a pin."
