The sculpture appears sound. There is tiny indentation to the sculpture towards the bottom at the front that appears inherent to the medium. There are a few tiny nicks to the extreme top and bottom of the sculpture, only visible upon close inspection. There are a small number of tiny spots of dirt and surface matter to the sculpture, and possible light dirt. This excepting the work appears in very good overall condition.
