Book Description Allen and Unwin, Wellington, 1990. Card Covers. Condition: G+. No Jacket. Photos, Drawings, Diagrams, Map (illustrator). 1st. Comparatively little is recorded about the Maori tradition of kite building and flying, From its Polynesian origins the bird-shaped Maori derivation served for spiritual and recreation purposes. Manu signifies "bird" and "tukutuku" the lattice-like nature of kite construction. Although widely used throughout pre-European NZ, the kites are given little attention in early documents and literature and today only seven true examples are believed to exist --- in four museums. Bob Maysmor tells the story of the kites from their origins to demise in 10 chapters, including materials used, different types, lines and bridles, flying, chants and charms and kite legends and histories.
