Full View of Unknown Lady

An Unknown Lady, by unknown artist. Dated 1576.

I post this because it shows a "bongrace", the black head covering hanging over her forehead, over what appears to be a simple coif. Another interesting detail is that she is wearing two rings each on two of her fingers, but no rings on her middle finger.

I found this on the Internet, on a site that is just filled with various images, and no info on where any of them come from. If anyone knows more about this image, please contact me so I may update this info.
