Copious Carnage - Luisa Casati

Luisa Marchesa Casati (1881-1957) was an eccentric Italian muse and patroness of the arts who was a living work of art herself.  She once went to the ballet with live snakes wrapped around her neck and leashed cheetahs at her side.  Imagine how much of an outrageous spectacle that must have been!
