documentation for the rest... it's just that darn slit. I'd ignore
it, except that it's on soooo many non-contemporary images of her
that I'm convinced it stems from SOMETHING. And it looks cool, and I
want to do it, and I've been looking for it so long that I'm
determined. (I don't have to find the slit on a portrait of her. I'd
settle for anyone, anywhere c1490-1520.)
Hope's site has a few things that are sorta slitty. But wrong
country, of course....
