Load Word DOCX Document with Large Image in Memory (Java) | Avoid XMLStreamException: Improper GE/element Nesting

Hello Team.

I have a word document that contains a large image (41.6 MB): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SalVzpYWmJFnvwW94cIrC8I4A-mDiovz/view?usp=sharing

I cannot open it using Aspose.Word java version 21.2.0:

com.aspose.words.Document asposeDocument = new com.aspose.words.Document("example.docx");

The error is:

com.aspose.words.FileCorruptedException: The document appears to be corrupted and cannot be loaded.
Caused by: java.lang.IllegalStateException: XMLStreamException: Improper GE/element nesting: entity &null contains closing tag for <w:document>
 at [row,col {unknown-source}]: [2,20463207]
	at com.aspose.words.internal.zzZYQ.zzZ(Unknown Source)
	at com.aspose.words.internal.zzZYQ.read(Unknown Source)

But the file is not corrupted. I can open it in Word.

I was wondering if there is something wrong with the image (document)?
Or Aspose.Word has a restriction about embedded images?

Thank you in advance, Svetlana.
