This work is in very good condition overall. The edges of the sheet are deckled and there is light time staining visible, most evident along the extreme edges, and some previous adhesive residue visible along the top edge. Under very close inspection, a pinpoint spot accretion is visible above the elephant's backside and in the lower right quadrant between the squiggle forms. The sheet is hinged verso to the mat at each corner. Framed under glass.
