The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is brighter and more vibrant in the original.
This work is in very good condition. There are minor abrasions and fine scattered scratches to some of the extremities and minor areas of lifting at the joins. On close inspection there are a few extremely light handling marks in places to the reflective metal surfaces.
