No visible tears, creases, or losses. Wear along four margins, most likely to be original to the artistic practice. Surface stretches throughout the recto. Throughout the recto, there is a network of minute white spots that show underlying paper and are not completely covered with paint, which appears to be original. To the center of the image, there is an unevenness to the black pigment; however, it does not appear to be a restoration. No visible sign of restoration under UV light. Along the verso, front image lines have been transmitted; please see the listing image. Along the lower margin, there is a minute paint mark, which does not affect the recto.
