This work is in very good and sound condition overall. There are tonal and textural shifts throughout, inherent to the nature of the artist's chosen medium. There is a surface layer of dust, visible upon close inspection, especially in the unpainted areas. There are scattered white accretions to the top of the sculpture, visible upon close inspection and potentially due to the artist's working method. There is minor discoloration to the red paint at the lower portion of the sculpture, possibly from previous water damage and visible upon close inspection.
