eBay Find of the Week – Macaw Feather Dance Fan for Pow-wow
You are looking at a Dance Fan with Macaw Feathers (6) and a red dyed Peacock feather in the Center. Each feather has a white plum feather and a little red Macaw feather on the end. The feather extensions and the handle are beaded in Peyote style with glass beads . The handle is made of Cedar wood and nicely wrapped with a light sand colored leather. The front from the handle is decorated with a beaded medallion, the sides have beaded strips. This fan is excellent for Pow-wow dancer, competition or not. It goes with Woman's Traditional and Jingle Dancer, or it could be used as a Prayer fan.
On the pictures from the back side the color doesn't show right on the pics, probably because we used the flash. Actually the color from the feathers on the back is a beautiful yellow with dark edges.. It even so depends on the angle you look at it. This fan is from the end of the handle to the tip of the feathers 18 inches long, the fringes are 12 inches long, widest width 7 inches. The beaded handle (Peyote ) is 4 1/2 inches long. This is a beautiful addition to every Regalia.
