Made from tissue paper, this kite is in the well-known diamond shape. It was made by sticking together squares of black, yellow, red and green. Two reed sticks stretch across the back from corner to corner. The tail strings are also made from tissue paper. The kite comes from Cuetzalán del Progreso, in Puebla state, Mexico.
Kite festivals are popular in Mexico, and people by the coast enjoy kite-surfing. A giant kite, much bigger than this, pulls the board and its surfer over the waves.
