Xiao. Fan

I was raised by my grandmother in Shanghai. In my memory, when I went to sleep in the hot summer, she always sat my side, swinging a fan to make me cool. My grandmother also used the fan to make a fire for cooking every day.


In China, 1000 years ago, writers and poets gave fans decorated with their own writings and paintings as gifts to one another.  My grandmother's fan and these artists' fans were made in different styles and from different materials. For me, both of them have great significance about history, culture and love.
