This work is in good overall condition. There are a few minor tears and folds of the gold metal sheet. There are a few traces of oxidation over the surface. The irregularity of the surface is inherent to the artist's technique and choice of media. (IN GENERALE, L'OPERA E' IN BUONE CONDIZIONI CONSERVATIVE. VI SONO ALCUNI MINORI STRAPPI E PIEGHE SULLO STRATO DI METALLO DORATO. VI SONO ALCUNE TRACCE DI OSSIDAZIONE SULLA SUPERFICIE. L'IRREGOLARITA' DELLA SUPERFICIE E' INERENTE ALLA TECNICA E SCELTA DEI MATERIALI DELL'ARTISTA.)
