Care and Handling of Kachina Carvings

Kachinas or Katsinas require little care other then an
occasional (gentle) dusting.

Never wash them or even wipe with a damp cloth.

Older carvings that appear soiled or dirty,
should be left as they are to maintain their value.

All Kachinas are fragile, some - extremely so.

It is best to hold a kachina from its base or most solid part.
Avoid touching the detail pieces.  Always handle with care and
display out of harms way.

Be sure the shelf or table you use for display is safe and secure.
