2 cloth gracefully draped and arranged in loose folds
Drapery refers to cloths or textiles (Old French drap, from Late Latin drappus) used for decorative purposes--such on windows--or to the trade of selling cloth. Even small British towns had several drapers' shops until quite recently, when ready-made clothes, curtains, etc have become the norm. Several department stores originated as drapers' shops.
The depiction of draperies revealing and concealing the human form has been a major theme of sculpture and painting.
