Items of sentimental value
Wooden Kachina figures from trips made by my dad to the American Southwest. These were chosen by me to keep when our family home was sold last year. In the religion of the Pueblo Indians of North America kachinas are 500 divine ancestral beings who interact with humans. My husband and I also traveled to the Southwest and the Four Corners and visited where the Kachinas still dance and visit their people.
Three men from my family home's living room, bought about sixty years ago by my parents and made in China.
This man is holding a fish and has a lot of detail. Our home had so many nice things in it, I was pleased to keep some. They were shipped from Wisconsin to my house in California and arrived safe and sound.
Do you have items of sentimental value, from loved ones or a family home?
