We recommend that you site your sculpture away from radiators and windows as extreme temperature and light conditions can alter your sculpture. The best place to site your sculpture is in a cool room out of direct sunlight. All our interior driftwood sculptures are treated with carefully selected natural waxes. This treatment prevents excessive drying out of the wood and reduces but cannot completely prevent cracking or widening of existing cracks with time. You need only to dust your sculpture. DO NOT apply modern furniture polish to it.
