making the head into a tower

Nefertiti (1370-1330 B.C.)
Roman portrait of a Flavian woman (80-100 A.D.)
Van der Weyden (1455 A.D.)

Was going through a comprehensive art history book and noticed these women in different countries and different times with big towers on top of their heads. I like to think of them as thought made elegantly solid.
