Overall the condition of the wood is good, with some wear and dirt to the surface consistent with age. The mourning figures appear to have been stripped of their polychromy, while Christ, the cross, and the base have not. Traces of polychromy remain in the faces of some of the figures. There are a few losses, notably to Mary Magdalene's proper right arm and to the Virgin's terrasse. There is some minor stable splitting to the wood consistent with the material, in particular to the mourning figures. There is some evidence of past worming, including to the cross and crucified Christ, and the worm holes of the mourning figures have been filled in a slighty lighter colour than their surfaces. There is wear to the polychromy throughout, including craquelure and minor losses.
