There are three small losses beneath the headdress in the upper left, and there may be ongoing instability in this area. There has been restoration here in the past to address this instability. There are some slightly raised cracks in the lower left, beneath the arm on the right and around the paint losses in the upper left. The paint layer should be further consolidated to discourage further losses, and the existing losses should be filled and retouched.
