Scattered scratches, dents, scuffs and cracks consistent with age. A few small losses to lower torso and small patches, the back with a larger rectangular patch probably filling in an original opening. The head is hollow and has a large vertical rectangular opening in the back which now has a later loose cover. Old residue of black, white and pale blue paint, mainly on the head. Both feet with old minor worm holes. The proper right lower leg and foot of a different wood and probably replaced. The proper left hand with minor losses and a repair to the knuckle under the index finger. The proper right hand and a portion of the forearm of a lighter colour than on the right, probably due to cleaning.
