The immense grace in the flowing lines of these Buddha fans could only been conceived by a peaceful content soul living in harmony with the community and the environment.
Initial readings suggest that such fans are used in temples during ceremonies and are held by disciples to shield the monk’s eyes from distractions while giving blessings.
