The sculpture is in good condition. Its uniform black patina is in very good condition despite its previous placement outdoors. Tiny bumps on top of the base, minor corrosion along the edge of the base and faint water spots in a few areas were observed which confirms this. No significant scratches or abrasions were noted on the surface. The sculpture is clean and displays a fresh protective wax coating on the surface. The sculpture is structurally sound.
