The image is of a painted fold-out fan that is completely unfolded. The wooden handle is dark brown with small engraved Chinese writing on the right side of the fan. The paper is blue with large light green leaves on the left side. Behind the leaves are two bunches of small red berries and small leaves. There is a thin stem coming out from the bottom-center of the fan and extends towards the right side. The stem has a round pink flower and two pink buds on its end. Above the pink flowers and right-of-center are two small green bugs close together with their wings extended out.
