Good to know : The first kachinas, the Püch tihu, were flat and in one piece: the arms were an integral part of the trunk and the legs were non-existent. Transformations took place from 1870, in particular the separation of the lower limbs, the appearance of forearms. Year after year, the modifications were refined to result in modern dolls, faithful imitations of masked dancers, such as those exhibited in American museums in the Southwest of the United States (Heard Museum in Phoenix and Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff ).

The evolution of kachina dolls is related to the age of the child who receives it. For an infant it is carved from a block, flat without arms and sometimes covered with sugar and over the years the doll becomes more elaborate, more precise.  Wikipedia source
