      Princess Leia hair is so totally 300 A.D.

      A proto-Princess Leia emerges from this 1,700-year-old terracotta lamp created in North Africa. 

      We may have Roman North Africa to thank for the famous Leia hairstyle, as this braided look appears on depictions of women in ancient artworks from this region, such as the terracotta lamp (left) at the Getty and the marble sculpture (right) at the Met.
