Overall in excellent condition. When viewed firsthand, this biomorphic design by Joris Laarman exhibits unique sculptural qualities and an ethereal translucence. The resin surfaces present with scattered minor air bubbles, particulate inclusions and surface irregularities inherent in the making and not visually distracting. The resin surfaces throughout present with extremely faint scattered scratches, scuffing and light surface soiling consistent with gentle use and concentrated to the base of the piece. The resin with a few occasional and very minor dimples and indentations, possibly inherent to production, three of which on the base are slightly more pronounced. A masterpiece of contemporary design.
