aluminum foil with acrylic lacquer and polyester resin

18½ by 23 by 22 in. 47 by 58.4 by 55.9 cm.

Executed in 1973.

This work is in good and sound condition overall. The work exhibits some minor abrasions to the pigment, some inconsistencies in the surface texture and color, including very light scattered rust, which are inherent to the artist's chosen medium and working process. Upon close inspection, there is evidence of light dust accumulation to the surface, particularly to the crevices of the sculpture. There are a few scattered areas of stable cracking and loss to the pigment.
