This painting originated in Iraq. It had been rolled up and later wet to 'improve' the dry looking surface.

Both of these actions resulted in the paint losses.

The painting was lined to a new canvas to stabilize the flaking paint and stretched to new stretcher bars.

The top left corner shows an area that has been cleaned.
