Industrial fans are by their very nature, heavy, voluminous and largely made of steel. This means that shipping costs, either to the OEMs, such as oven manufacturers, who will fit them to their machines or to end users like the steel industry, can add enormously to the quoted cost. Additionally, shipping globally can add substantially to the price because of international tariff barriers. Fans shipped into the USA for example, attract a 27% tariff. USA built fans avoid this penalty completely.Read More »

Davinci started this portrait around 1503,and it is thought to be Lisa Gherardini, wife of a Florentine cloth merchant called Francesco Giocondo, hence it’s alternative name, La Gioconda. The work is described as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about and the most parodied work of art in the world". It is arguably the most valuable painting in the world. It is quite literally, priceless.
The Mona Lisa bears a strong resemblance to many Renaissance depictions of the Virgin Mary, who was at that time seen as an ideal for womanhood. The painting was one of the earliest portraits to depict the sitter in front of an imaginary landscape, and Leonardo was one of the first painters to use aerial perspective.
However, Leonardo seems to have taken the completed portrait to France rather than giving it to the person who commissioned it. It is not known how long Leonardo worked on the painting or how long he kept it, but after his death, the painting entered the collection of François I. and it is to this day on display in the Louvre museum in Paris.
