The paper is hinged to the mat by the upper edges. The colors are vibrant. Rippling is visible in the upper margin of the paper. Upon close inspection, there appears to be three vertical areas of faint smudging on the purple vase on the left-hand side, the black vase in the center and in the white background in the extreme right. Additionally, there is a vertical crease, approximately 4 inches in-length, which extends from the center of the white vase in the center of the composition.
