Traditional paper kite made by Mao Nom (Cambodia). Made with brown craft paper and bamboo. Monofilament used to connect the verticle spar, but verticle spar is missing. This is a female version of a larger Khleng Ek or Pnorng, and it is decorated with metallic paper cutouts of blue and gold. Its sail is molded around the bamboo and secured with glue, no hummer, no bridle.
