Absolutely fascinating. The sleuthing you're doing to determine how to proceed is really interesting.

(And no need to apologize for the length of the video--when it's all such good information, who cares about the length!)

As always, your dedication and enthusiasm is clearly visible "through" the video - which is a great thing to see in any creative work.

One thing I was wondering as I watched this - if you still have the file where you started tracing the other copy, it might be interesting to see the two trace files overlaid and compared.
As someone not deeply familiar with the craft, I don't know if it'd end up being lines completely shifted, different "brush" styles, or just small differences to edges...
Of course, I might be asking for a cultural taboo here, I suppose this could be construed as downplaying the craft of the carver that created the copy...

There is a ton of 'supplementary material' that I think people would be interested in seeing. This project really needs its own complete website, actually ... there is just so much depth here. But I'm sorry, that sort of thing is out of the question for me these days ...

This type of comparative analysis really is 'fascinating' as Margaret says, and a huge learning experience for all of us. Keep it up!

Thanks for putting this together. I really enjoyed the video. Don't ever worry about 'going too long.' There's nowhere else we could see this kind of thing. It's also cool to see what's going on outside. I've always wanted to visit Japan. Can't wait to get the print, but have no problem being patient.
