The back of the board covers are water-stained and there are traces of a label on one side. The edges are banded in pink or red cotton which is stained and frayed. There is a cord to hang the figure against a wall. Inside, the figure is charming and printed in great detail. The surface is slightly grubby with age, and there are some minor age stains. There are several "fold-out" layers (printed on both sides) revealing all manner of organs, veins, bones, tissue, muscles and arteries. The condition of these is good, although one small organ fold has become detached. Further photographs and descriptions can be sent on request.
