This work is in very good and sound condition overall. Under close inspection, there are scattered areas of abrasions and minor chips, with associated paint loss, primarily around the perimeter. Surface irregularities and variations in texture are inherent to the artist’s chosen medium and working method. Under close inspection, there are scattered areas of discoloration. As expected with a sculpture of this construction, dust has settled throughout.
