Rare dark side!

Post by messydesk » Sat May 29, 2021 1:18 am

Ran across this in a Facebook group. It came into a shop years ago as part of a collection. The alteration is well done, I'll give them that.

I vote for completely false dies, not an alteration.

Would be more interested if it has eight tailfeathers.
