The central figure is slightly loose in its base, but otherwise the sculpture is sound. There are minor traces of oxidisation to all three figures, and traces of light surface dirt, particularly in the crevices. There is a very tiny scratch to the back of the left hand element, in the upper quarter. Subject to the above the work is in very good overall condition.
Each element of the sculpture is attached to a wooden base in one place.
