This work is in very good condition. Close inspection reveals a fine layer of dust that has adhered to the crevasses of the work. Further very close inspection reveals a minute loss to the bananas at the upper edge and a small crack to one of the plastic petals at the upper left. All other cracks and surface irregularities are in keeping with the artist's working process.
