Changes from state III in drypoint: alternating leaves on the plant at the right, fully shaded.
State V of this composition, printed on paper, was created as a 2004 holiday gift for a circle of friends. In the same year, Bourgeois created another composition, on fabric, called, Untitled (Descriptive Title: Hand Holding Tree), for a selected, smaller group of friends.
There are variations found in the old fabrics Bourgeois chose to use as printing surfaces. The example reproduced here has some staining in the center left composition.
