Executed on card, laid down and floating in the mount. The left edge of the card is very slightly deckled. There are a few fine surface scratches inherent to the artist's technique. There is a tiny nick (approx. 0.2cm) to the extreme bottom edge at the lower right corner. This work is in overall very good condition.
