How do you translate "robe" into Italian?
I have used google translator to translate the English word "robe" into Italian, but the result turned out to be four: accappatoio, tunica, toga and abiti da cerimonia. In fact I need a word which can fit with the context from a book called Chinese Art & Culture. "Robe" here appears in the following sentence which refers to a statue of Buddha:
Much of its surface is covered with later repainting, but the robe covering both shoulders, the ridges on the skirts, and the flattened sashes on the base are likely to be original.
I'm wondering what can be the right answer.
Thanks a lot in advance!
