Very good condition. There is some pitting, which is inherent to the stone, throughout the composition, but this is not generally noticeable. There are a few small losses around the bottom edge of both back paws. There is an inherent grey inclusion in the stone on the outside of the left front paw. The sculpture is structurally sound.
