    Zande fetish is goed verpakt en in goede staat aangekomen.
    De ZEER LATE levering ligt voor 100% aan PostNL. Bij leveringen binnen Nederland geen problemen, maar uit USA en nu uit België een drama!

    Meiner Meinung nach zu teuer. Riecht streng und ist jünger als angegeben oder unlängst überarbeitet. Aber ein Foto macht oft mehr her!

    Ein ungewöhnlich gut ausgearbeitetes Stück. Selbst wenn keine Kultspuren erkennbar sind,
    eine Zierde für die Sammlung.

    Maske sehr dekorativ, aber auch sehr strenger Geruch - Altersangabe falsch oder gerade erst auf Hochglanz aufgemöbelt? Schade!
