Both Corpus figures bear the usual minor knocks and scuffs overall consistent with age.
The wooden Corpus is missing three fingers from the right hand.
There is redecoration in places overall.
The nails and the crucifix are later replacements.
The ivory Corpus bears the usual minor and naturally occuring cracks within the ivory -there is no weakness or instability in these. The arms are separately carved and added to the torso. The join-cracks are relatively pronounced.
The crucifix is later.
