A gift from the artist to the present owners


Condition: This work is in good condition. Previous gluing of the mask to the skull has resulted in two losses of paint on the side of the skull, which are not visible when the mask is on. There are some historic pieces of tape and associated residue attached the to the top of skull and to the sides of the jaw of the skull. Close inspection reveals some superficial media deposits, which have accumulated in the crevices of the skull. Very close inspection reveals some tiny scuffs and chips in isolated places.
