I would use Murphys Oil Soap

Dust first and then gently wipe with damp cloth; dry immediately.
If these are ornate carvings you can try using canned air (generally used on computers) as this can blow a lot of gunk out of the crevices.

You can then try mixing about a cap-full of Murphy's Oil Soap in a quart or more of water and wring out a clean cloth and gently wipe the surface.
You can dip a toothbrush in the mixture to clean out the crevices.
Always rinse cloth/toothbrush in a bucket/pan of clean water before reusing.

Continue to gently dry all surfaces as you do want any surface to remain wet for very long.
This may take several times but should be safe (but only if paint was applied correctly) so always check small inconspicuous areas first.

Use clear, clean water as final wash.
