shan wen kia scale diagram Figure 2: "Mountain pattern scale" - my idea of construction. As before, scale centers are green, blue lines are ridges and red lines are valleys. There is only one rivet hole in this design

Update Nov. 6, 2000. I have improved my pattern by making room for the rivet of the underlying scale, and trimmed the corners so there is less useless overlap. This is a scale drawing on a 1 inch grid. Scale was derived by measuring period paintings and sculptures. The consistency among sources was very good, in that the distance between rivets was just about one inch or a little smaller.
