My latest version of my popular 'MEMENTO MORI' fans, this one created in India for a US client and now made to order in a similar but never exactly the same design..... please allow up to 7 days for your fan to dispatch.
....for those of us who don't speak Latin....'Remember You Must Die.!'
This version with a glittering red rose ( much more glittery and sparkling than in my images )....and a tooth 'gem' just to add an explanation mark to the motto. The motto is in black edges metallic silver on a pearled graphite grey base and the skull painted in mono acrylics. The rose is painted with acrylics and a lovely metallic sparkle paint in tones of red and pink and gloriously glittering green leaves. The last image is of a different version of this fan. I have left the back of the fan a deep black.
I also have a " Memento Viveri " version ( Remember to Live) in my dark Side collection.....they make a cute pair :) It's a positive negative kinda thing? ;)

And now to the Memento Mori fan: again, so lovely and lovingly painted. A treasure forever. Thank you so very much!
I can include a card with a personal message upon request. Your fan will always be elegantly gift wrapped and boxed too at no extra charge. You're No 1 Hand Fan is sent priority shipping, world wide. It will be tracked and require a signature. Please see shipping information for estimated delivery times and costs.
The painting is made directly onto a blank fan which is made of Fabric and plastic. Then they are lacquered for further protection. I have used this particular fan for its lovely stury feel it's durability and high use potential as well as having the closest surface texture to canvas for my paintings. When receiving a fan please open it gently upon arrival and leave open for a wee while to rid any lingering process smells and to generally let the fan breath.
Clean with a damp cloth and avoid rough handling, leaving in high temperatures and exposing to water....treat it as a usable art object and it will last you well.
If you are looking for a way to display your fan when not in use?
For a rustic look you can find small easels at craft stores that you can paint to match your fan as I have done for many of my photographs.
Some clients display their fans in deep frames, either open, for easy access or closed keeping the fan as an art object.
A super easy way to show your fan on a wall is to put up two wall protrusions, make sure they are soft finish or padded (not bare nails or screws) and rest bottom of the leaf of the fan on the points, so the fan spans open. Place the points about 5 inches / 12.6cms apart. Many of my images show fans displayed like this too.
Or you can find generic hand fan stands here:
