Title

Kite Making: Tim Sao fits the Aik onto the top of the kite's spine, 1987

Description

Tim Sao fits the Aik onto the top of the kite's spine. The piece is made of two bamboo slats, the first is longer and will act as the bow that will pull the thin bamboo "singing" ribbon taut; the second piece is used to add support to the longer piece to which it is bound lengthwise with wire, and also provide a means for attaching the Aik to the top of the spine. This is done by separating the two tightly bound pieces and fitting the spine between them and fastening them with wire. The ends of the longer piece are notched like a hunting bow to fasten the string that will pull the vibrating ribbon taut.
