I finally figured out what these are and where they are made. They are made from a lost-wax technique out of brass and silver plated by tribal people in the Orissa area of Eastern India.

    i spent an hour looking for info on these on the web and found a couple pics of others, but no info yet. they are very tribal looking - asian? african?

    thanks robinhawaii. these little critters have really grown on me. i think they're great! i couldn't find anything similar from ghana, but i did find two of them on etsy, but they said that they were asian. i have my doubts though. sure would like to find out something about them.
