Wolf's Song Five Feather Fan by Dreamspirit Wolf's Song Five Feather Fan by Dreamspirit
"Wolf's Song" Five Feather Fan ~ August 1, 2005

This fan was completed for a recent convention, and sold there in the art show. :)

This fan was the largest fan I had there, and was likely around 30 inches long, from tip to tip. The feathers are five wing feathers from specialty hybrid turkey and are naturally white with some black, brown, and gold to them. The handle was handcrafted by my fiance from golden oak. The fur is from a particularly golden/auburn coyote, and the fan has been wrapped with a smokey tan deerhide that has been woven and braided in parts. :) The wolf painting is around 4-5 inches wide and high, and the knotwork was freehand.

There are eight deerhide dangles as well as two additional fully beaded dangles. The beading includes glass beads as well as frosted glass beads, copper beads, marblized glass beads, etched silver beads, semi-precious lapis lazuli, sandy jasper, tiger's eye, antiqued bone, wood, and copper cones. There are also two smaller wing feathers from a similar variety of turkey that tip two of the handle's dangles.

While I didn't like this much as I worked on it, I grew to enjoy it more as it took shape over many, many hours of work. :)

Enjoy!

Hehe! Sadly, the profit margin on these wasn't as good as some of my other works of art so I stopped doing them quite as often, but I definitely enjoyed doing them during the hey-day. :)

Fan like you'd use to fan yourself, or for decoration or ritual purposes. :)
