Peacock Wrasse kite line laundry


This is not a kite, but an item of “line laundry,” or “line art,” terms referring to pieces hung on a kite line to add to the display.  They bring the display closer to the ground and thus to the spectator, and fill up more of the sky.  They come in many forms, from simple spinners to animal shapes and many other fantastic designs.  This fish is 8ft long, and needs a fairly big kite to provide lift, but is a magnificent spectacle in the air.  It is another Premier Kites product, and well-made to last a long time.  I forget where I bought mine, but it is available from Into the Wind and other Premier stockists.  List price (2011) is $159.95.
