How to Decorate a Wau Kite

The name wau kite comes from the shape of the kite. They originated in traditionally muslim countries, like this one, from Malaysia.

The Arabic letter wau (pronounced like its English alphabet cousin, the w, has a shape that would fit into one half of a vertically divided wau kite.

It's shape most closely resembled an English number 9, as in Comic Sans font. So, two nines, set back-to-back, with the tails at the bottom, resemble two wau's in the same positions.

Although ancient kites were used as tools, for fishing, or to make geometric measurements, these wau kites are strictly decorative.

In Malaysia one commonly sees such kites adorning both private homes and shops and public buildings.
