KITES FROM THE COLLECTION OF MALCOLM GOODMAN
Pursuing my hobby to most parts of the World for over 30 years, I have built up one of the largest private and comprehensive Oriental Kite Collections in the World. I have participated at many Kite Festivals in the Far East and throughout my travels I have bought, barterd, swapped and some have been kindly given to me.
The collection includes beautiful and spectacular 3-D silk butterflies and birds, exquisite miniature kites from 5mm (1/4") to huge l00 metre dragons from China, hand painted kites from Japan depicting warriors, priests and folk heros, traditional snake and bird kites from Thailand, the decorative Wau Bulan from Malaysia, life-like birds from Bali and Vietnam, leaf kites from Indonesia, tissue paper fighter kites from India, Korea and many more.
The following pages show just a few of my favourite kites and portray both the artistic skills and culture of this ancient oriental art form.
