    We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    Hi Al, I like the look of that one. It shows some genuine age to it.

    Please post up the translation (I know you will get it done ) once you have the results.

    I keep meaning to get mine, which is very similar to yours, framed up. I fancy a bamboo frame in keeping with the Far Eastern theme.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade , yes it`s got that colour and smell to the fabric that you just can`t fake . My wife , Linda , is an expert seamstress and dressmaker , and she told me when we were looking at it this morning , that the hem was stitched by hand and was very expertly done with stitches less than an 1/8 of an inch in length , which i was very pleased to hear ( you learn something every day ) I have two of these now and they are both a larger size than average , this one is 27" x 38" and the other is 28"x42" and i have been racking my brains on how to frame them. I can`t find anything " off the shelf " that size so i`m going to have to use my carpentry skills ! The bamboo sounds like a great idea , i may have to steal that one . I`m on the case with the translations and as soon as i get some results i`ll post them up

    Very nice, I have many IJA peices but not one of these, i see many of these here in Australia but grossly overpriced, infact i saw a nice one just last week for $1600 witch is just ridiculous, a fair price for one of these would be $65-100 at most.

    Thanks for showing

    Cheers-

    Darren, not sure what Auzzie dollars translates to but in the UK the prices for these are 80 - 200 dependant on artwork
