This work is in very good and sound condition overall. All elements are secure and intact. There is scattered evidence of wear and handling most notably at the edges and corners, some of which may be inherent to the time of execution. There is evidence of wood separation in a few areas, most notably at the upper center of the circular element, where there is a single hairline crack which is consistent with the natural grain of the wood. The outer enclosure of the sculpture is slightly misaligned at the lower left corner, also likely inherent to the artist’s intent. As expected with a sculpture of this construction, a light dust has settled on the surface and in the crevices.
