Kachinas are masked and costumed dancers representing various spiritual and natural aspects of life. They are messengers who bestow blessings and nurture life. Kachina dolls were once carved as teaching tools only to be given to the women and children of the tribe but now are made for all to collect and enjoy. Each Kachina Doll offered for sale by Kachina Country USA is handmade and in most cases one of a kind. While the item you receive will be very similar to the 12 inch doll that is pictured, there may be slight differences in colors, designs and style depending on the size of doll and artist. Each doll is signed and an information card is included. Sizes are approximate.
