  1. Isn’t it a closed fan that she is holding? The loop handle is toward her left hand and the feather trimmed top edge is in her right hand.

  2. Good observation. I believe that you are correct and that I misidentified a hand fan as being a graduation diploma.

  3. How do you know she is preparing for Graduation or a graduation ceremony? She just looks like she is ready for church or time out on the town to me.
