Late 20th century - In good condition

The ‘Pwo’ mask, representing the feminine ancestor, is always worn by men, who it turns into powerful beings.

  • The box arrived damage, however multiple layers of bubble wrap packing ensure that the contents were safe. Unable to see if the postal costs matched the €25 I paid

    Envio rápido, peça bem embrulhada em plástico bolhas mas inserida em caixa de cartão insuficiente. A peça chegou danificada com duas enormes fissuras que desfiguram. É uma pena ter ficado assim.
