Item:312809763554This little head comes with a tag explaining its provenance and authenticity; it was sold by and authenticated by Denver Gold and Silver Exchange. I'm not sure when Dad bought it, but it would have been decades ago. It's been sitting on his desk for many a year. It dates to 500 BC-500 AD and according to the tag was broken as part of a funeral ritual to release the spirit before burial. In total this item is close to 3 3/4" high, and the base is almost 2" square. ****************************************************************************USEFUL INFORMATION BELOWAll Buyers:I strive to get items in the mail within 24 hours of receiving payment. If I am delayed, I will let you know.I ALWAYS combine shipping. I love combining shipping. It saves me a box or a mailer! (However, keep in mind that combining a media-mail-type item and a non-media-mail-type item will disqualify the package from being shipped via media mail.) CHECK THE ADDRESS THAT YOU SUPPLIED TO EBAY!!! I cannot stress this enough. I'd say about 1-2% of the addresses that have been given to me have been incorrect. At the very least this will slow down the receipt of your package. At the worst, your package may vanish completely.If you like the item and are pleased with the transaction, please leave positive feedback! Conversely, if you have any issues with an item, please contact me! If I don't hear from you, how can I know that I made a mistake in the posting?Please be polite and professional in your dealings with me (and other eBay sellers). If an item turns out to be damaged or mischaracterized, it's because I made a mistake, not because I'm trying to cheat you. I am always willing to admit my mistakes and make good on them. However, I do not react well to hostility and accusations. U.S. Buyers: All packages are shipped with Tracking. International Buyers:BE AWARE OF CUSTOMS FEES!!! I am not responsible for, nor capable of, knowing how much your country will charge you in duty fees. Nor could I collect them even if I did know the proper amounts. Such fees will vary depending on your country and the value of the item. Contact your country's postal system for details.First Class International mail is NOT trackable, and I cannot be responsible for items sent that way that do not arrive at their destinations. Please note that I have not had ANY problems with items arriving, though they sometimes show up rather late.For items over a certain value, I insist upon Priority International Mail no matter what the size of the item. This is expensive, but it is at least trackable. I also insist upon insurance. This will hold true if an item is bid well beyond where I thought it would go and where I had initially indicated First Class International. If you're not willing to pay the price to ship something valuable safely, I won't send it and will cancel your bid/return your money if you've paid me.I do not ship anywhere in South or Central America except Argentina and Chile. A Final NoteThe US and various world postal systems have really been very good about getting stuff to my buyers on time and in excellent condition.Condition:Owned by my father. May be dusty in hard-to-reach corners, but otherwise in perfect condition, except for a bit of chipping along the bottom of the block. The tag is somewhat bent and faded inside., Provenance:Ownership History Available, Featured Refinements:Pre-Columbian Antiquities
