Estado de conservación: Presenta dos perforaciones en los ángulos superiores; estas son de origen. Un rayón en zona inferior izquierda, posiblemente de origen, pequeños faltantes de capa pictórica en zona media derecha. Al reverso, se aprecian escurrimientos líquidos y de pintura que no afectan el frente de la obra. Hay algunas zonas donde Siqueiros intencionalmente no aplicó pintura y que deja a la vista el soporte (es decir, la madera comprimida). Luz UVA: Se examinó con luz negra y no se ven intervenciones posteriores. Se aprecia discreta absorción de pigmentación en zona media inferior derecha.
