Colour: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonality of the bronze is slightly darker in the original.
Condition: This work is in very good condition. Some light dust fibres have settled in the recesses. There are some irregularities to the patina which are in keeping with the artist's choice of medium and working process, and there are two small dents to the base of the sculpture.
