Who hasn't ever dreamed of flying through the air like a bird? This kite, an original work of art from the imagination of its craftsman, was born from that dream. Amazingly realistic, the kite is said to actually attract "tonbi" birds, on which its design is based. And why not? Serendipitously, the word "tonbi" translates into English as the bird named "kite." So this is technically a "kite kite"! HAND MADE IN JAPAN

 

 

 

The veteran kitemaker who crafts this work of art is Tetsuya Kishida.
