The sheet has not been laid down on the mat and is attached to it by two hinges to the reverse of the upper left and upper right edges. There is a very minor repair to paper along the lower left edge and a minor (ca. 1/4 in.) tear to paper to top left edge. There is a light wave to the paper. The work is in very good original condition.
