Please note that this work is made out of found object. The work exhibits areas of flaking throughout, particularly to the base of the figure. Please also note that the back right and left-hand corners of the base of the figure appear to exhibit losses. The largest measuring approximately 150mm long and 100mm high. The figure's right-hand hand appears to be missing part of its index finger, which could be contemporary to the creation of the work and the artist's intent. There appear to be plastic jewels missing within the robes: two to the front left-hand side of the figure as well as to the figure's robes on the lower back of the work and one to the lower right-hand side of the figure.
