More than 100 folding fans and fan-making tools and materials are on exhibit at Suzhou Museum. They are provided by Wang Jian, a master artist in fan making.

The exhibition is held by the Suzhou Administration of Intangible Cultural Heritages and will continue through September 22.

Wang has been making fans for more than three decades and has succeeded to revive old techniques, such as fans with ebony ribs and gold-flecked leafs, a handicraft from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
