Thanks for the kind words, friends. I plan to mount that scroll externally, rather than covered by the silk as usual. Usually, the silk covers the edge of the rice paper, often with a border all around, sometimes thicker on top and bottom. For this one, I will tear the edges, rather than cut, mount the scroll onto the plain back of silk paper and then mount that paper itself in silk, overlapping as usual. This means that you'll see the edges of the scroll.
