Condition Report

This work was field collected by Kim Akerman and there is a photo of it at the time of collection which shows it in a very similar state to its current appearance. Some significant areas of old pigment loss, most prominently through the mid torso and the lower body, with some scattered losses elsewhere. A crude wire loop repair inserted through the bark from the lower centre margin which has been attached in order to hold a crack in the bark together. A crack to the facing left hand edge, running between the perimeter binding holes, some other small cracks and minor losses. As illustrated in the catalogue, all remaining pigments appear relatively stable.
