    14-11-2019: binnen 2 dagen na aankoop is de 'bronzen Dogon krijger te paard' aangekomen, het is werkelijk prachtig! Aanleiding voor mij om nu iets te leren over de rijke Dogon cultuur.

    El envío no lo he recibido todavía. He estado en Correos de España y no les aparece la referencia que me han dado. Me he puesto en contacto con el vendedor hace días y me han dicho que lo mirarían.

    Thank you for your feedback. As you know we asked the courier to locate the package, for now we have to wait until they answer. If the package is lost you will be fully compensated of course. I am sorry for the delay of the transport company. Ik will keep you updated.
