Vertical lines are added above the forehead, joining up with the shading above his head at right.
Vertical lines extend the shadows across the top; long nearly vertical lines are added at upper left; a patch of diagonal lines extends the shading to right of his neck.
Signed with a butterfly above centre, towards the left edge.
Some slightly curving vertical lines are added above the forehead; lines form what appears to be a tuft of hair above the forehead; near vertical lines reinforce the background shading at the top; additional fine diagonal lines augment the shading to left of his profile, particularly around his beard.
The diagonal shading at right is continued below the shoulder.
Some of the diagonal shading to left of his head is fading and barely shows in the impression reproduced.
