Types of Wau: Wau Daun (Leaf Kite)

This is one of my handmade Malaysia's Traditional Kite called Wau Daun (Leaf Kite). It derrives its name through its shape; unlike that of the Muna Island in Sulawesi which are made of leaves. Wau Daun is an easy flyer during the least wind condition. The frame is made of bamboo strips and the sail is of kite paper. This Wau Daun is handpainted using Fabric Dye and Poster Color.
I am not an artist but this Wau Daun of mine is too beautiful to keep or to fly. So, I donated it to the Pasir Gudang Kite Museum in Johore Bharu for display and safekeeping.
