Unexamined out of the frame. The card appears stable and the collaged elements appear secure. The upper edge is unevenly cut, in keeping with the artist's technique. One element of collage towards the lower left appears to be slightly lifting. There is some discolouration to the adhesive in places. There is some light surface dirt and a few spots of studio detritus. This excepting the work appears to be in excellent overall condition.
The work is float mounted and held behind glass in a simple wooden frame.
