85 by 63 in.

215.9 by 160 cm.

Executed in 1972. 


This work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Casa Amaral. 

This work is in very good condition overall, taking its age into account. All of the wool and horsehair elements are secure, stable and accounted for. A few of them exhibit loose threads, but these are securely affixed. The natural dye in the blue elements is slightly light-struck on one side of each element, which is consistent with the age of the work and the natural properties of this material; however the color remains vibrant. The work is ready to hang.
