Overall in very good condition. Carved from a single piece of ebony, this abstract sculpture displays a smooth ebony surface resting upon a skillfully carved base. The ebony presents with some very minor surface scratches and minute indentations throughout, some possibly inherent to the making. The wood with very fine and stable hairline cracks throughout consistent with age and the evolution of the medium.
