Tattered Fans and Talismans: The Symbolism of Battle Fans and the Ethos of Impermanence—Melissa McCormick
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
This talk explores the evolving imagery of the folding fan, focusing on its use and symbolic meaning in the hands of medieval warriors and Edo-period samurai. From talismanic fans believed to be imbued with supernatural efficacy, to icons of ephemerality, the discussion will culminate with an analysis of the striking campaign coat (jinbaori) with tattered fan design in the Weber Collection.
Venue: Asia Society
