Hi There~ My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question. What is the size? At your convenience, please send photos. A complete image of the artwork including frame both front and back (do not remove from frame), a clear in-focus close-up of the signature, and a close-up of the surface so I can see the texture will be ideal. When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range. There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing on your board, then follow the steps on this link: I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here. Sincerely, Nora

I gave you the size,apparently you did not read the question thoroughly or did not understand that Frank Cota was a brutalist sculptor, and I was asking about a sculpture,so why would it have a frame?Do you know who Frank Cota is? I have photos on my smartphone, but I am not satisfied that you even read the question or know who the artist is---plus it took a long time to answer and I plan on taking the sculpture myself, in person to an appraiser today and will not need your services or will be paying the 38 dollars---- but I thank you for your time
