Wow Rat! I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generous commitment. I suppose it's really difficult to translate, not only the individual signs but above all to reconstruct the meaning of the sentences and the author's thought.
This is a truly intriguing story of the scholar who, in front of the paintings received as a gift (who knows what they were?) feels such agitation
that prevents him from sleeping and eating. And then he tries to express himself by painting and writing and he still asks himself questions....
Now, every time I look at this roll of paint I will think back to that sleepless night of the scholar. Three hundred years ago....
