A kite is a tethered aircraft. The necessary lift that makes the kite wing fly is generated when air (or in some cases water) flows over and under the kite's wing, producing low pressure above the wing and high pressure below it.

Kites may be flown for recreation, art or other practical uses. Sport kites can be flown in aerial ballet, sometimes as part of a competition. Power kites are multi-line steerable kites designed to generate large forces which can be used to power activities such as kite surfing, kite landboarding, kite buggying and a new trend snow kiting. Kites towed behind boats can lift passengers which has had useful military applications in the past.


Chinese dragon kites

Chinese Dragon Kites

Chinese dragons are quite unlike dragons in the west; they are seen as wise, benevolent and bringers of good fortune.

The dragon heads are all individually hand painted - each one is unique with its own 'character'. They all feature:

Deer horns, as deer are ridden by the imortals and represent longevity and good luck,

Tigers eyes - the tiger is the king of the beasts, mighty and strong.

Catfish whiskers, to represent the material wealth. (Catfish are an essential part of the Spring festival meal).

A humans beard, as a symbol of intelligence and talent.(The longer the beard the wiser you are).

The segmented body (centipede) represents a snake.
