There is extensive wood loss from insects and weathering on the face base (see details). The section between the figure and head is covered in leather, probably hiding a joint or repair. There is a repaired crack on the neck of the animal and a stable crack up the back of the figure. Note that the figure and head do not face in the exact same direction.
