This work is in very good and sound condition overall. There are scattered losses, unobtrusive stable cracks and hairline surface scratches throughout, which is inherent to the artist's choice of medium and working method. There is evidence of stable cracking to the material covering the metal support bars on the reverse with associated oxidation to the support bar, only visible on the reverse. There is light wear and scattered losses throughout the base, most notably a minor loss to the left central edge of the sculpture, which is inherent to the artist's choice of medium.
