Colour: The colours in the catalogue illustration are fairly accurate, although the yellow is slightly deeper in the original.
Condition: This work is in very good condition. Very close inspection in raking light reveals some shallow surface scratches and rub marks to the resin, and some media accretions in isolated places. Further close inspection reveals a few small areas of light white paint to the lower horizontal and lower vertical edges underneath the resin, which fluoresces when examined under ultraviolet light.
