Image of Språng Cap on the Louvre's website

There is an image of a red wool Coptic språng cap, item E 29484 on the Louvre's website, www.louvre.fr/en/oeuvre-notices/sprang-cap, along with information about språng.  The writer believes that the Copts were influenced by the ancient Greeks' språng head coverings.

I was on the Louvre's website trying, without success, to look up a piece of Greek pottery in their collection that shows a woman holding a trapezoidal språng frame.
