Conceived in 1971, the present work is number 1 from the edition of 6.
The sculpture appears sound. The surface is uneven and pitted in places, in keeping with the Artist's working methods and materials. There are a small number of tiny nicks to the extreme edges of the head and the winged tips, with one or two minor casting imperfections and one faint scratch to the surface of the face with one or two possible further more minor instances elsewhere. There is rubbing to the sculpture, most evident to the front of the torso. There is surface dirt and casting residue to creviced areas. This excepting, the work appears in very good overall condition.
The sculpture is attached to a wooden base.
