The work is executed on two thin sheets of paper which have been joined and laid on a larger sheet of paper which in turn has been laid on card. Adhesive marks are visible in places at the join between the two sheets and there are scattered creases, these are inherent to the support used. All the sheets have discoloured. There is faint mount staining along the edges of the two sheets and a band of adhesive staining at the join. There is a light layer of surface dirt with pencil smudging and handling marks. The card is taped to the mount along all four edges on the reverse. Framed and held behind plexiglass.
