7000 uchiwa fan ribs form an image of the Seto Inland Sea
Marugame uchiwa fans are carefully crafted by artisans in Marugame City. The artist used approximately 7000 uchiwa fan ribs to create a spacious installation that depicts the complicated tides concealed beneath the placid-looking surface of the Seto Inland Sea and how they create its multiple faces.
