Overall in very good condition. The epoxy stone has been professionally cleaned and presents with a few occasional surface irregularities in the stone and faint color variations inherent in the material, visible in the catalogue illustration. The bronze elements have been professionally waxed to bring out the richness of the patina. When viewed firsthand, the bronze presents with a slightly warmer hue with occasional inflections of blue compared to the catalogue illustration. This variegation adds a nice level of complexity and dimension to the metal. The bronze is in very good condition with scattered surface scratches and abrasions, concentrated primarily to the feet and consistent with age and use. This "Mouton de Pierre" is complementary with other works from the series offered in this sale (lots 4 and 6) and is suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
