The Art of Malay Kites

wau jala budi (kindness castnet kite)

the kite Master

meraut buluh (cutting the bamboo)

wau payung berekor (Tailed Umbrella Kite)

Wau Bulan (Moon kite)

These photos I snapped around a Bazar at the MPK field, about 3-4 months ago.

Looking at this old man's art, I found myself submerged in the beauty of the flora and fauna of his imagination. It was so beautiful and meaningful, and every of them communicated with me. Farther more I walked in, the brighter and more colorful the skies and the forest became. I found my late grandfather there. I found me.
