Standing Feather Fan

An exquisite object of unknown origin, this fan’s elaborate decoration uses the blue and purple feathers of the Brazilian purple-breasted cotinga to depict flowers and birds. Likely an example of cross cultural exchange, the stick is probably European, either English or Dutch suggesting that the location of assembly might have been either hemisphere.
