Maori Legend Kites
Depicting New Zealands Maori legends and art on our kites seemed an appropriate way to differentiate ourselves. The very
positive reactions of expat New Zealanders (Maori and pakeha) to our two Maui kites at a Bondi Kite Festival in Australia
confirmed to us that more Maori themed kites would be appreciated. Bold and colourful yet relatively simple graphics are best
for stunning kite displays.
Fortunately for us the graphics in some of Peter Gossages childrens books on Maori legends are perfect for making into kites.
The reaction of children to a picture they recognise makes it all worthwhile.

It was a sad moment for us when we
learnt that Peter Gossage died on 30
There will be no more books with
their colourful drawings for the kids
to enjoy and us to depict on our kites.
We were pleased to have received
several years ago from Peter his
consent for us to use the drawings on
our kites. At the time Peter suggested
that his new book, In the Beginning,
would look great on kites.
These kites are not for sale.
