"Las Meninas" fan
Polished pear wood. 27 cm (stick). Made in Spain.
The "menina" María Agustina Sarmiento offers the Infanta Margarita of Austria an earthenware vessel in Velázquez's most emblematic work, Las Meninas (1656), a detail that is reproduced in the mount of this beautiful fan, a traditional, effective and sustainable remedy to mitigate the summer heat.
