Guatemalan Kites

In addition to having altars and Dia de los Muertos decorations at the Idaho Historical Museum when I visited, they also had a room with Guatemalan-inspired kites.

You can read about the tradition on the information card that accompanied the exhibit.  The kites on display were made by local schools and people in town.

There were several kites that looked like quilt patterns.  It is a wonderful display.  I wonder if the museum will burn these after they take them down?
