      As I was browsing images of pens and inkhorns today, I came across this
      portrait by Dosso Dossi (or his circle)

      The portriat is of Laura Pisani. Her capigliara is pretty usual for
      Ferrara, but what about those ?chains? hanging down. Has anyone seen
      anything like this?
