This work is in very good condition, as is the board, which is neither cracked nor warped. Paint layers are well-preserved. There are a few scattered colorless liquid media accretion on the surface of the top register, which fluoresce under ultraviolet light and are not apparent to the naked eye. Examination under ultraviolet light reveals scattered minute spots of restorations throughout the composition, most notably on the figure and bottom half of the painting. This work is accompanied by the original frame of the artist.
