Pair Older Asian Indian Bronze/Brass Deity Heads

Brass or Bronze - two cast metal deity heads. Dates to the mid 1900's or possibly earlier. The figures have a good weight. The features of the face to the right is stylized without sacrificing detail, and the figure has decorative earrings, head wear, and a marking in the middle of the forehead. The figure on the left has decorative earrings and details of the hair styling.

I believe the heads represent a male and female deity. Please note that the colors of the heads are brighter due to lights needed to photograph.

They are in very good condition. There are no breaks and no repairs.

Sizes: Male head: 5 x 3¾ x 4
Female head: 4½ x 4 x 3

Weight: Each head: 1½ lbs. Total both: 3 lbs.

Condition: very good - great patinas

Markings: none

Found in the 1970's at an Asian Indian Antique Shop in Greenwich Village, New York City
