Natural earth pigments on eucalyptus bark

The painting appears in very good condition with no repairs or restoration. There are small areas of pigment scattered throughout the surface of the kangaroo and some areas which are lifting and a little unstable. The painting generally is in stable condition overall though would benefit from professional consolidation by a trained conservator. To inspect the areas where the pigment is lifting we suggest requesting a high resolution image from the department.
