Fan The luminous pastel colors are an outstanding feature of this fan. Typical of fan designs, this one is replete with contrasting imagery.  The elaborate sticks have a decidedly Chinese aesthetic but depict the Three Graces from Greek mythology that represent joy, charm, and beauty.  This imagery in turn contrasts greatly with the pastoral scene of a goat herder.
