THE ARTWORK OF PATRICK SCOTT

LOOSE FLAT FAN

 This style is a loose flat fan. The fan is strung together, so it opens up and close to fit into a gourd box. Sometimes there are no beads to hold these feathers together, and it drops like a drop fan. This would most likely be used by men. It can be used in dances, peyote ceremonies, and/or devotions
