The panel is flat and stable, with a dirty paint surface and yellowed varnish. There appears to be an addition at the upper margin 2 cm. wide, visible in the reproduction. There is a damage to the lower right corner with a diagonal surface split running up the upper margin. In raking light the panel also appears to have sustained some vertical splits running down from the top of the original panel into the side of Christ's face, each approx 11 cm. long. Inspection under ultraviolet light reveals retouching to the dark background, along the join of the addition, to the dark folds of Christ's drapery and parts of his hand, and to a restored damage to the centre of his forehead. There are also some strengthenings in his hair and along his profile. Older restoration is difficult to discern beneath the milky, opaque varnish. The painting is in overall moderate condition.
