These kites were commissioned by the Drachen Foundation through Adnyana Nyoman of Bali. Since the originals are two times larger, it was decided to have good kites made in a size which would be detailed and a good replica of the original kites. Work was done by village kite makers of the original materials, bamboo sparring and nylon/synthetic material sails. the overall hieght is 5 foot by 6 inches, width 6 feet by 5 inches. Add 2 ft 5 inches for the head.
