Slightly different fabrics were used for this edition, as it is common to find variations in the old fabrics Bourgeois chose to use as printing surfaces.
Curatorial Remarks:
Two merchandise items were made with images of this print: a T-shirt and a tote bag.

This impression has been mounted to a backing board with cross stitches in each corner, and framed. Due to the nature of the mounting and framing of this work, the verso could not be examined.
