<< There is a portait of Elizabeth in a dress embroidered with human eyes. >>

Minor point: the Rainbow Portrait (at Hatfield House)  shows QE I in a gown
with eyes and ears *painted* on the satin lining. They're most definitely
not embroidered. (actually, it's probably a mantle, not the gown.) Painted
fabrics were very popular during the 17th century.
