RE: [Italian Renaissance Costuming] Interesting capigliara
They are coils of some sort, not chains. Some have thought them to be hair
that has been bleacked.
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?
