Medici called „The Consignment of the Regency „ (1622-1624,
Peter Paul Rubens, Louvre). The gown bodice with large sleeves
and the gown skirt are made of dark violet velvet following

sleeves, lace ruff and lace scarf supported by wire rebato (supportasse)
created in cooperation with Daniel Krizan.
