The Future of Kiteflying
Future is not conservation of the ashes, but passing the fire
Kite first appeared in the wars of the Chinese Spring and Autumn Period, some 2500 years ago. One ancient book noted, that the master carpenter LuBan invented kites that were flown high to spy on the situation of the enemy. There is a Monument of LuBan in front of the WeiFang Kitemuseum in WeiFang, ShanDong Province, China.
