Bird kites, soaring

These kites are a Chinese folk art and remind me of the kite festivals in Weifang, Shandong Province. Also, children, parents, and grandparents love to fly kites in open spaces in cities (except that there are hardly any places for kite flying these days). So, the kites recall family life, leisure, and open space. If you look closely at the artwork on the kites, there are patterns that refer to handcuffs; but the image details are less important than the overall feel.
