月亮风筝飞呀飞- 马来传统风筝Wau Bulan

<简体文>

Wau Bulan-直译为月亮风筝,也被称为马来传统风筝是一中注明马来西亚传统工艺。若是您有仔细深入的研究马来西亚攻略的话,就会知道Wau Bulan在马来西亚半岛东海岸,特别是在吉兰丹州特别著名。马来西亚半岛东海岸也有很多吸引人的马来西亚景点,哪里的海岛吸引了不少游客,而每年在吉兰丹举办的的国际风筝节更是游客们前来马来西亚旅游时不应错过的活动,在这里,大家就有机会看到很多做工精细的各种风筝,当然少不了Wau Bulan。

作为能代表马来西亚的传统工艺,Wau Bulan其实当之无愧。这种马来传统风筝基本上分为连个部分,上面的部分是横摆的尖椭圆形,下部份就好象一轮横躺着的新月,所以才被称为月亮风筝(Wau Bulan)。这种风筝的体积十分庞大,一般的长度为2.5米,宽度为3.5 米。而有些就大得十分夸张,需要几个壮汉来才能把它放上空中。

据说,这种风筝源自Srivijaya时代,很多人都以为它和清真文化有很深的关联,但其实他和兴都教文化有很深的渊源。风筝的图案多数以古典式的花卉图腾为主,风格及配色都十分华丽,而且一般上来说颜色对比也强烈。而随着时代的变迁,也有清新的花色设计及经过改良的形态。而风筝的图案是师父巧手纸雕,再拼凑出来的。然後就是用竹枝弯曲成所要的形状,再把纸雕糊上支架。最后,这么美丽的风筝当然少不了装饰一番。而风筝一般都做得那么大,就是为了当风筝被放上天空的时候,还是可以清晰可见它上面的图案。

在很久很久以前,在稻米丰收之后人们才会放Wau Bulan来庆祝及娱乐。特别在东海岸的吉兰丹,美丽的沙滩就是Wau Bulan最美的起飞点。而如今,它则是因为它的艺术价值及美态深受风筝爱好者的青睐,更是每年吉兰丹国际风筝节代表我国的最耀眼代表。也因为它可以代表着马来西亚,除了国花大红花之外,才马来西亚的零钱上也能找到Wau Bulan的图样。

生态旅游希望游人可以透过在地传统手艺了解这个国家的文化,所以我们诚挚的欢迎您来马来西亚看看这美丽的让我们深感骄傲的月亮风筝。
