Here is another work of art from Bella's collection. This is an old Japanese print, called "Ai-Hime no Sensu" (Ai-Hime's fan). Ai-Hime was a noble Japanese princess from the last century and here you can see her performing a theatrical dance with her silk fans. The dance is called Kokoro ("Heart").

Once again, the lovely Poodle Ai is the model here. I used an old print from Shimura Tatsumi as the base.
Thanks to my friend Yoko Ito for the lovely model!
