The Caryatid Hairstyling Project - Athenian sculptures with elaborate female hairstyles or coiffures, unveiled and on display in the sacred and prominent location of the ancient Athenian Acropolis, invite an analysis of the preserved hairstyles to determine whether or not the sculptors invented an artistic convention or used real hairstyles of the day. Spearheaded by Dr. Katherine Schwab, the project was conducted in April 2009 to test reality or fantasy of these hairstyles.
