As noted, the markings are painted in deep blue in the original; the writer probably intended this to indicate the purity
of water. The arrow on the far right is to indicate that the second row of markings follows in one long row that simply
wouldn't fit on any normal page; the original scroll is about ten feet long. Amon was able to tell, through careful
examination of the brush-strokes, that the scroll was meant to be read in this orientation rather than the reverse.
Note the use of Parm ("bind") at both the beginning and the end.
