2. The modern way of carrying a qin
Image from Yangchuntang Qinpu, QQJC VII/352-3. The text in the box, upper left, is as follows (compare the ancient way),

今人以背向外、以面向內,以手管定龍池_ _便也。
Modern people think the back of the qin should face outwards; they think the front should faced inwards, so that the hand can control the "dragon pond" (large sound hole; two characters are unclear).
