Hand Painted Folding Paper Bamboo Fan with Maehwa Painting
This hand painted fan sealed by the artist is aimed to exhibit the maehwa tree painting on which a pair of birds perched on a branch for a rest creating a wonderful harmony with the beautiful lines made by the wide breadth of the unfolded fan's outline and the attractive three-dimensional creases of the paper arranged neatly. The Maedeup (Korean macrame) strand tied on the handle gives the beautiful panache to this fan.
