Cantino Planisphere Fan

Introducing the Terra Lusa Planisphere Hand Fan, a unique piece from the esteemed Terra Lusa Fan Collection. This exquisite fan is not just a cooling accessory, but a piece of history, a work of art, and a conversation starter.
The design of this fan is inspired by a planisphere dating from 1502, a time when the world was rapidly expanding, and new lands were being discovered. The planisphere depicts the lands recently discovered by the Portuguese, making it a fascinating snapshot of the world as it was known over five centuries ago.
One of the most remarkable features of this planisphere is that it contains the oldest cartographic representation of Brazil. This makes the Terra Lusa Planisphere Hand Fan a must-have for history buffs, cartography enthusiasts, and anyone with an appreciation for unique, historically significant artifacts.
The fan also features the meridian of the Treaty of Tordesillas, a significant historical event that changed the course of history. The treaty, signed in 1494, divided the newly discovered lands outside Europe between Portugal and Spain along a meridian 370 leagues west of the Cape Verde islands. This detail adds another layer of historical significance to this already remarkable fan.
The Terra Lusa Planisphere Hand Fan is made of polished pear wood, giving it a smooth, elegant finish that is both pleasing to the touch and visually appealing. The polished pear wood also ensures durability, making this fan a long-lasting addition to any collection.
The fan features artificial silk screen printing, a technique that results in vibrant, detailed images that truly bring the historical planisphere to life. The silk screen printing adds a touch of luxury to the fan, making it a stylish accessory for any occasion.
When open, the fan measures 43 x 23 cm, making it the perfect size for providing a cooling breeze on a hot day. It features 24 sticks, ensuring a sturdy structure that can withstand regular use.
The fan comes in a PVC bag, providing a convenient and protective storage solution. The bag is durable and easy to clean, making it ideal for protecting your fan when it’s not in use.
In conclusion, the Terra Lusa Planisphere Hand Fan is more than just a fan. It’s a piece of history, a work of art, and a testament to the spirit of discovery that defined the era it represents. Whether you’re a fan of history, a collector of unique artifacts, or simply someone who appreciates beautiful, functional design, the Terra Lusa Planisphere Hand Fan is a must-have addition to your collection.
