Condition Report

Condition:

This work is in good condition. There is a minor scratch on top left, only visible upon closer inspection. There is some light wear to bottom right corner. The work would benefit from a light clean. There is no restoration apparent when viewed under the UV light.


Colour:

The catalogue illustration is accurate; however, the yellowish skin colour on the figure tends more towards a soft tan colour in the original work.
