"15th-century geometry" fan
Polished pear wood. 23 cm (rod). Made in Spain.
15th century Hispano-Flemish painting was no stranger to advances in perspective, as can be seen in the colored tiles of The Virgin of the Catholic Monarchs (1497), by the master of the same name, which inspired the pattern printed on this fan, a traditional, effective and sustainable remedy to mitigate the summer heat.
