There is some fraying as well as unravelling of the weave in the burlap, however this appears to be in line with the artist's pratice and possibly inherent to the work. Minor cracking and associated lifing to the paper material in the centre of the work, possibly inherent to the work. Overall, the work appears to be in good condition.
