Laura – yes, women are definitely displayed much differently in apparent appearances such as size and placement. But the cultural significance that you are hinting at with the woman laying alongside her man at a banquet or the man and woman embracing each other under the sheet also speaks loudly to the role of a woman in the society of then. She was not in the back anymore, she was besides her man.
