Condition

This work is in very good condition overall. Close inspection reveals some handling and wear to all corners and edges. Upon very close inspection and raking light, there is some creasing to the seams, most likely to be inherent. Further close inspection reveals paper skinning in intermittent places running along the lower edges of the sculpture, most notably to the back and the left areas.
