Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.les photos montraient un recollage de la tête, mais il est sur que c'est une enfant qui l'a recollée, et j'ai découvert des bavures d'une colle non professionnelle tout autour du cou, dommagePlease note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Dear client,
In the description of this lot you can read that the “head is reattached”
Many detailed photographs also show this clearly.
In your feedback you mention that you noticed yourselves on the photo’s that the head was glued. If you don’t want an item with a reattached, glued head, why did you bid on it and complain later?
Most Pre-Columbian objects obviously come with some defects or restorations, since they are many hundreds or thousands of years old...
Some restorations are professionally done, others are not.
On the pictures of this item everything is shown clearly.

(Il lotto non è mai arrivato. Non farò più nessuna offerta con questo venditore)Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Dear client,
I'm very sorry the lot still did not arrive.
As you know the first time I shipped your item it was sent back to me after a few weeks, without any explanation why.
I shipped it a second time on 26 Sep and so far it again did not arrive.
I asked PostNL to start an investigation with their Italian partners Eurodis who are responsible for the delivery.
Unfortunately this can take several weeks.
Since I've had issues with Eurodis Italia before from now on I will only use DHL to ship items to Italy.
I hope my (many) Italian clients will get a better service from them.
Hopefully your parcel will be found.
If it is returned to me again I will sent it to you for the third time, but this time by DHL.
If otherwise ofcourse you will get a full refund from me.
Please have some more patience, although I understand you've had a lot already.
I can only apologize for the incompetence of Eurodis, but it is beyond my control.
I will keep you informed.
