We analyze the spatial anisotropic profile at infinity of steady Stokes flow around a rotating obstacle. It is shown that the flow is largely concentrated along the axis of rotation in the leading term and that a rotating profile can be found in the second term. The proof relies upon a detailed analysis of the associated fundamental solution tensor.
