Chinese Kites BAR142


Kite-flying is an age-old tradition in China. Its history can be traced back to the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC) and the Warring States Period (475-221) when Moxi and Lu Ban, according to historical records, made a wooden kite respectively. Famous Kite-makers of the Qin-Han period (221 BC-AD25) included Han Xin and Zhang Liang. Since then,accounts of Kite-flying can be found in many pre-Tang annals such as the History of Southern Dynasties and the New History of Tang. Mostly kites were used for military purposes,either carrying messages or exerting a deterrent effect of the enemy forces.
