The thick panel, which is flat and stable, is supported on the reverse with two horizontal battens. The paint surface is quite dirty and the varnish is discoloured. Small, discoloured retouchings can be discerned scattered throughout the composition. These are confirmed under ultraviolet light, and are minor in nature - the most notable areas of retouching are to the proper left side of Christ's torso; in the cross above His proper left hand; and in some areas of the margins, especially upper left, lower centre, and centre right. There may be an older campaign of retouching in addition to this, but it is extremely hard to make out below the milky varnish, and the painting is in apprently overall fairly good condition.
