Condition

01.10.24: In my opinion regarding LOT 1782: As described there are typical small losses as the fingers and toes, specifically the loss of one finger each to Mary and child, and the infant Christ is lacking all toes on one foot, I note that the sculpture is intact and appears structurally sound, there is typical craquelure throughout the gesso, as well as some visible seams/splits to the wood, including two at the base, I observe several areas with varying degrees of surface-level chips/loss commensurate with age
