Kite, not only is it a kind of toy or a traditional continuing, it is more a cultural accumulating. Inrepparttar 147053 "Three Stone Rooms",repparttar 147054 capital's youngest kite master Liu Bin fromrepparttar 147055 kite aristocratic family, said that kite containes too many different cultures, flying a kite also must emitrepparttar 147056 affective tone.

There are three kinds of kites that are unique in their own ways. Inrepparttar 147057 "Three Stone Rooms" at Dianmen,repparttar 147058 rooms are full of all kinds of kites making human feeling dazzled, nonprofessionals really don't know where to start. Actually, most popular kites are categorized into three kinds: hard wing, soft wing and dragon. Liu Bin said thatrepparttar 147059 hard wing is like a man, mature and strong;repparttar 147060 soft wing is like a woman, slender and elegant; whilerepparttar 147061 dragon kite flies a breadth of spirit and power.

Hard wing kites like "Shayan", "Triangle", use bamboo strips all around to outlinerepparttar 147062 shape,repparttar 147063 strips are glued together with paper inrepparttar 147064 center, butrepparttar 147065 designs on paper can be created at your own will.
