For centuries, fashion designers have been inspired by the “exotic” – a term often used to describe designs that have the aesthetic characteristics or qualities typical of faraway or foreign lands, but one whose definition has fluctuated throughout fashion history. For some designers, exotic fashions indeed allude to the styles of a distant country or unknown culture; for others, the concept is looser, and used to create new fashions that are colorful, striking, and extraordinary.

Two monoliths representing female deities are particularly outstanding in this group, although they were left exposed to the elements for centuries in the Plaza of the Moon following the collapse of the urban center.
