The two hands are lost. There are losses along the edges of the base, with larger losses to the two front corners, and to the high points in some places. The attribute in his proper left hand is lost. There is a chip to the tip of the lion's muzzle and to its proper left ear and paw. Whitish clay consistent with the type of clay available in the Maine area. The terracotta hollowed with two openings visible to the back and a third one on the back of St Mark's head. A few firing fissures are visible in some places consistent with the material. A few green glaze drippings (on the lion's head and on St Mark's proper left ear for instance) are visible in some places due to the firing of the piece with other eathernware pieces, as expected for a terracotta made by a workshop in Maine.
