my statue was received by me with no headband at all, and no beaded belt. all black carved wood. the bottom of the statue is not even so it will not stand up on its own. one of the earings had come off in the bos. however it is of good size, and has great prescent without the headband and belt, tho they were expected. i am giving it to my daughter for an extra wedding gift...but i will now have to get something else to have similar meaning.
