The edition below is number 263 of the unsigned edition of 300 printed on Velin Paper. joan-miro-1,joan-miro-derrier-le-mirroir-3,joan-miro-derrier-le-mirroir-11,joan-miro-derrier-le-mirroir-10,joan-miro-derrier-le-mirroir-5,joan-miro-2,joan-miro-3,joan-miro-4,pablo-picasso-1
The unique facet of these original prints is that Picasso used his fingers to make the body of the shapes and outlined them in crayon to form the images. This makes these prints impossible to fake as Picasso's fingerprints are all over them.
