34.10.24 Complete but not intact. Top of left arm has broken off and been glued back on. Blue of cloak still faintly visible, but a lot of brown deposit is evident all over the figurine. The top of the head is covered with an even darker deposit, that also encases right shoulder and arm. The swan is also entirely covered by it. Inside the back of the figurine is a whitish deposit, and the surface is very rough, with scratches and air bubbles in it. 2002.97.0404.jpg
71.12.5 Two holes have been restored with transparent material. The end of the strigil is damaged. Discolouration of bronze to green, blue and black. Only a couple of areas of the true bronze colour remains. A couple of cracks have appeared making the object fragile. 2004.95.0150.jpg
71.12.6 Large parts of bronze have broken away from the sides of the curved section. The most important aspect to note is the deterioration in colour to blue, green, black and brown.
