I hope one of the periods depicted on these cases is of the time when the Japanese butchered all those that wasn't their friend(s).

I would buy one if I had some disposable income.. I think that they are unique. Besides, those covers take 3-4 weeks to make, think about it! $1000 for 3-4 weeks of work is nothing! I'm starting to lose faith in humanity.. It's only money.. You people have no respect for the culture of others.

Are you that it's $1000? Because it's too damn pricey even for a handcrafted iPhone case.

That was supposed to read 'Are you sure that it's $1000?'.

Why are there so many ignorant idiots in north america... seriously, you make the rest of us look bad... all you know about is yourself and your McDonalds and not know how to explore the world around you. I think the art is amazing and unique. If I had a lot of extra money, i'd gladly buy one. Unfortunately, like the rest of us, we dont have much to money to waste, so just shut your mouth and admire the work!

Ill admire your work when its worth the fucken price. Guarantee you wont see one order from the US, not in this day and time. And if you do who ever bought it has way to much fucken money. I know if I had an extra $1000 laying around I wouldn't buy a fucken iPhone Case. I'd go out and buy like a nice LCD TV or something that I will use more and actually serves a purpose jackasses!

So overboard. Why would one pay for something that is worth 5x more then the phone itself. Whoever buys a case for something worth 5x more theN the item it self is a idiot.

get your facts straight: actual cost of iPhone is $600 (16gb) or $800 (32gb)
