There are variations in the fabrics used in this edition, as is commonly found in the old fabrics Bourgeois chose to use as printing surfaces; some impressions have staining or scorching. Two additional examples with varying fabrics are reproduced in the Evolving Composition Diagram below.

There is 1 impression on fabric and 1 impression on paper outside the two editions of state II.

According to the Louise Bourgeois Studio, 3 of the 7 A.P. impressions on paper are not numbered, and one of those 3 impressions has red ink additions in the figure's belly button.
State Changes and Additions:
Changes from state I in drypoint: lines reinforced overall.
Curatorial Remarks:
The plate dimensions of this impression could not be documented because this work is not in MoMA's collection and could not be examined in person. The plate dimensions given are from the published impression on paper in MoMA's collection. Dimensions of fabric works often vary slightly due to stretching.
