    Full: Front

  • Picture of inside of bowl showing small circular shaft of bolt of the re-attached applique through its mount. The mount has shifted over time and as a result the shaft of the bolt is not long enough to fit through the hole in the Perspex and be pinned in place. Now it is simply adhered in place.
