    Condition Report*: The sculpture presents well.  Even patination with weathered streaking, primarily to concave surfaces.  3.5" fill (repair) to underside of top right form.  Small circular areas of corroded build-up near this fill, and two similar areas on the back of the sculpture.  Two minor white accretions on the verso and scattered pinpoint white dots (possibly paint).  Slight black accretion (possibly paint) near base on verso.  Flaking to black paint on concrete base.  Otherwise very good condition.
