It was distressing to hear from a collector that artwork arrived damaged. I packed it as if it was going to the Moon and back. I even stood in the post office and watched the postal clerk stamp 'Fragile' more than a dozen times on the box. I believed in good faith the various postal workers that handled my parcel would heed the message and take care with the 40 pound wood box containing a wall mosaic.
Now I believe, that on the contrary, the temptation to destroy was greater than any responsibility they may have felt, not only to a customer, but to their employer as well.
I'll be exploring other options for delivery, although I seriously doubt other carriers will care one whit more considering the tone of current society.
