This sculpture has recently been restored to its original appearance, as it was when Russell made it. After the artist's death, a foundry altered the sculpture by cutting off the knot and adding a different base, in order to make it easy to cast into bronze. The knot was located in a Russell collection at another museum and was donated to this museum, so that it could be restored.
