Colour: The colour in the catalogue illustration is fairly accurate, although the overall tonality is slightly more green in the original.
Condition: This work is in good condition. There are some light handling marks and rub marks in places to the wooden base and media accretions and signs of ageing to the fridge. Very close inspection of the paper-mache sculpture reveals some hairline cracks, media accretions and a few minute specks of loss in isolated places throughout. No restoration is apparent when examined under ultraviolet light. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
