Title

Kite Making: Soeun Tim and Tim Sao join the slats, 1987

Description

Soeun Tim and Tim Sao join the slats of the kite's Bottom Wing with copper wire. As with the Top Wing, the bamboo slats for the Bottom Wing were planed down with a knife to make them flexible so they could be bent into shape. (In order to achieve the delicate curves of the design the slats are gradually bent by hand to actually reform the bamboo).
