stuffed animals, color light bulbs with electrical components and wooden cabinet assemblage

33 by 28 by 28 in. (83.8 by 83.8 by 71.1 cm.)

Executed in 1963.

This work is in good and sound condition overall. The electrical components are in working order and are operated by a switch on the top of the work. There are textural variations to the surface, which are inherent to the artists working method and chosen media. There is dust present in the crevices and soiling inside of the cabinet consistent with the age of the work. There are scattered surface scratches and accretions, most notably on the wooden cabinet element, visible upon close inspection.
