Panel uncradled. Three horizontal panel joins run from left to right and are visible to the naked eye. There are some additional splits in the panel, but both the joins and the splits appear to be stable. U.V. reveals some retouches along aforementioned joins and splits and some retouches here and there to the background and to some of the figures. These retouches have all been applied well, and the painting may be hung in its present state. In a painted wood frame.
