This work is in very good condition overall. There is evidence of some very minor soiling and dust accumulation to the surface of the magnesium. Under close inspection, there are a few scattered, minor surface scuffs and scratches due to the artist's original installation of the work as an in-laid floor piece. Only visible under very close inspection, there are a few pinpoint areas of oxidation and a few scattered pinpoint surface accretions. Framed in artist's frame.
