Colours: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is much brighter and warmer and tends more towards a golden brown in the original. The catalogue illustration also fails to convey the textural variation of the original.
Condition: This work is in good condition. There is a significant amount of white mould throughout the composition, visible in the catalogue illustration, inherent to the artist's choice of medium. There are both fine and pronounced cracks throughout the resin, intrinsic to the manner of production. There are two light scratches towards the centre of the upper left hand quadrant. There is a further very faint scratch towards the centre of the right hand edge. There is adhesive residue to all four corners of the plexi box frame and instances of wear and adhesive residue to the corners and at intervals along all four edges, both front and back and along the sides. There is a scratch towards the lower right corner of the upper left quadrant. There are two rough 3cm. hanging holes that are lightly scratched.
