Kite Is Art

A kite is not just a play thing, it's an art.

It is believed that kite had existed in China in the 800 BC. However, some cave paintings found on Muna Island, near the island of Sulawesi in what is now Indonesia proved that it may have existed long before that.

The kites in these photos are some of the exhibits displayed by Art Kite Indonesia at the Bambu Nusantara Festival held in Bandung last weekend.
