This brief concluding chapter reviews major findings and reflects on the theoretical framework of the monograph. Allusions are made to the work of the various anthropologists, sociologists, biblicists, scholars of religion, art historians, and scholars of women's studies whose models and methodological approaches have informed this study. Key themes emerge involving the relationship of hair to cultural perceptions and projections. In ancient Israel, portrayals of and attitudes toward hair involve issues of gender, ethnicity, holiness, aesthetics, leadership, and economic status.
