Feather Cloak from 17th-Century Brazil

Now in the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana in Milan.

It was donated by Milanese cleric and collector Manfredo Settala (1600-1680), who kept a famous private museum. This cloak may be the one hanging on the right-hand wall in this 1666 engraving of Settala's collection. Via The History Blog.
