This painting is in generally good condition. The surface of this small painting is cracked. There seem to be retouches added to the darker colors of the spiral. A vertical mark in the lower left does not seem to be original. There are other restorations that are visible under infrared light inspection. At present, there are two reinforcements along the bottom edge, and one addressing a small damage in the lower right of the circular shape.
