European Aigoplan bird hunting kite made with a printed linen sail and square wooden dowels. Horizontal spars are connected with a barrel cyclinder. Twine tension lines and a metal half circle loop to give the kite more dihedral. Fabric is not sewn, but uses glued construction. Vertical spar has split legs: starts as one piece, and one third of the way down, is split into two legs.
