The work appears sound. There are a few nicks, rounding and possible scratches to some of the protruding edges, some of which may be in line with the Artist's working methods. There are some minor rubs and scuffs to the round circular forms. There is a scratch on the lower half of the right vertical element. There are instances of surface matter and dirt, particularly in creviced areas, and some elements of rust, most likely inherent to the Artist's working process.
