Not sure of the significance of either of these statues but I have had them for many years. Maybe someone else might be able to shed some light.

    Hi, the figure on the the left is probably Shou, the Chinese Star God of longevity with two of his attribute, a staff and a double gourd flask holding the elixer of long life. The figure on the right appears to have an elephant trunk and tusks; if this is correct, it is the Indian god Ganesha. Regards, Jim
