This work is in very good and sound condition overall. There is minor evidence of wear and handling scattered throughout. All surface irregularities, including nicks, dents and pinpoint losses, are inherent to the artist’s chosen medium and working method. As expected with a sculpture of this construction, a light dust has accumulated in the crevices and between the various elements.
