This kite features nine bats in different colors based on the “bat” and “luck” homonym to visualize the popular saying in the capital city Dongjing of the Song dynasty (960-1279 AD) “there are nine places in the world with each blessed with one kind of luck” as recorded in the book Qing Yi Lu by Tao Gu (903-970 AD).
