Colour: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate.
Condition: This work is in very good condition. Very close inspection reveals there are a number of minor chips scattered at intervals to all four extreme edges, and some minor frame rubbing in places along the top edge. There is a stable tear in the collage to the centre of the top edge inherent to the artist's working process. There is a very short scratch in the silver paint to the bottom left tip of the lower right star and another very minor scratch towards the right tip. There is slight aging to the fabric-collaged areas which is consistent with the materials chosen by the artist. Inspection under Ultraviolet light reveals some areas of fluorescence to the lower left star, a further small area on the figure's knee to the bottom left and along the thigh to the right all of which appear to be original.
