Very good condition. The bronze is structurally sound and bears a brown patina. A close inspection reveals light wear to the patina on the most protruding areas of the rock and on the male figures left buttock and foot. There is a small red media mark on the side of the rock, towards the base (level with the end of the female figures dress) and a small white media mark on the male figures leg. Apart from two tiny scratches to the male figures chest and some light verdigris to the rock, this work is in very good condition.
