When I was a kid, I fond of kite flying with my nephews. If you wonder how come, I have to tell you that my nephews and I are close in age. I am the youngest in the brood of eight. Anyway, It's summer again! I wish I could fly a kite with my son together with his cousins. (It sounds familiar. It's the line of Piolo Pascual in his Centrum commercial).
Filipino fathers and sons are fond of kite flying even kite fighting. Originally, the kite was first invented in China, where materials ideal for kite building were readily available: silk fabric for sail material, fine, high-tensile-strength silk for flying line, and resilient bamboo for a strong, lightweight framework. By at least 549 CE paper kites were being flown, as it was recorded in that year a paper kite was used as a message for a rescue mission.
Today's theme in Mixed Media Monday is "come fly with me". So I inspired to create a paper kite art for the challenge. It's really a good timing because it's summer season here in the Philippines.
Have a wonderful Monday everyone!
