    Condition Report*: Sand has become unaffixed in many areas and is actively flaking; yellowing to the glue is visible surrounding some of the rocks; possibly a few rocks missing from the center of this piece, however it is hard to tell due to the works creation; a few scattered nicks and scratches to the wooden pieces; overall surface soiling, most visible on the lighter areas.

    It would indeed have been much simpler to work with a local auction house, and we had local options. But we never once regretted going with Heritage.
