The Frans Hals' Ring Toss Game

As we saw in the feature on Frans Hals, his portrait paintings give us a look at the Dutch fashions of the 1600's. His subjects wanted to be portrayed in their distinguished clothes, but we've decided to cut loose here and let you play a game of "ring toss" with their formal collars!

Make sure to read our feature on Frans Hals which provides more background on these "ruff collars" or "millstone ruffs" as they were called.
