The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonlaity is brighter with the marble tending more towards pure white with grey veins in the original.
This work is in very good condition. There is a tiny brown media accretion at the top of the right hand element (according to the catalogue illustration). On close examination there are a few tiny rub marks to the tips of the top of the central elements. There is a fine vertical scratch at the centre of the reverse of the sculpture. There are a few further small rub marks around the base. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
