The marble has been outside and there is evidence of weathering throughout. There is dirt and traces of lichen to the surface. There is veining to the marble, consistent with the material, including a slightly open vein to the proper left foot and hand running into the base. It is possible that there could be a few small losses to the base. Otherwise the condition is good, considering the fact that this is a sculpture intended for outdoor display.
