Condition Report

The works appear sound. There is evidence of woodworm in the taller work. This appears no longer to be active. There is splintering to the wood, most likely in keeping with the Artist's intention. There are a few nicks and chips to protruding areas and some possible very minor flaking to the layer of the taller work. There is some dirt and surface matter to the work. This excepting, the work appears to be in very good overall condition.


The works are free standing.
