As in the West, in China and Japan too, the poet has long been a figure to be revered - at least in older times. Tokyo's suiboku (Chinese-style watercolor) painter, Ransui Yakata, pays tribute to the figure of the poet with this beautiful non-folding fan.
The wise young poet sits under a cherry tree in meditation, contemplating nature and awaiting inspiration.
Buy this artistic tribute to the power of the word, hand painted by Ransui - a one-off from GoodsFromJapan.
Use it to stay cool, and add a touch of serene sophistication to any interior.
